Re: Its time to Re-power

Ditto. Had a 50 HP Merc for 10 years (it's a 97), only maintenance required. We have had the 60hp Mercury BigFoot EFI 4-stroke for years and it is rock solid...no repairs yet, just maintenance. Our MacX varies from heavy to very heavy and the 60HP does either. I have several props and change to matc...

Re: Uh oh what did I do

$1002? Confirmed, it's a MacGregor 2-24. Towed it home today. It's a nice little boat. The 1974 Johnson 6 started right up after 2 years in storage. I'm going to post it at my Marina and this website for $2,500, figuring that people I like should get a good price. I'll put it on my local classified ...

I just bought a Mac25 via WhatsApp virtual tour. Lol.

Trailer looked great, boat was super clean inside, don't know if the Johnson will run or not.

$1,000 cdn. One boat buck exactly.

The plan is to clean it up and flip it. Famous last words.

it looks like a perfect solution.

BUT: 600 bucks...

So for e I'm fine with the cheap solution...

Re: Hunter 23.5 over 26C - talk me out of it?

And humble ... don't forget humble ... :P Thanks for all the thoughtful feedback. It feels like the 23.5 is still the slight favorite for us although I think we would be plenty content with a 26C and it would have a lot more potential too grow into. Either way I strongly suspect local availability a...

Re: Being your own surveyor when purchasing a boat

Very nice, thank you. 8) From time to time, a post will pop up inquiring about buying a Mac, and what to look for. I saw this article in the latest B.O.A.T.U.S. magazine on being your own surveyor. I thought it would be of assistance to those who may be lurking in the shadows, but have not yet stepp...

The mast doesn't seem to be properly stored either. the spreaders are resting on the lifelines, putting tension on the spreaders and lifelines . I'm guessing they should be maneuvered under the lifelines?

Hello everyone. I was actually looking for a classic, which was more in my budget, but happened to find a '99 X needing some TLC for less than what I was prepared to pay for a classic.
