Re: New Mainsheet System (Airblock purchase)

I suspect BWY is merely closed for the 4th of July Holiday. I expect you can reach them next week. They always have great service in the past.

Re: question about selling items

Classifieds Tab at top has a category for equipment, services, accessories, products and even miscellaneous , not just the entire boat. Looks like you could sell anything there.

Re: Where is my leak coming from?

To find leaks inside, the Great Don Casey recommends using water soluble marker on the bulkhead. You can draw a line up high and leave it to see any runs.

Re: 1985 Mac 25 hull thickness

I seriously doubt any core was used for the Hull of the MacGregor Boats. Core is only used in the Deck to reduce weight. More weight low down on the Boat is a good thing.

Re: Where to find a used Macgregor 25 trailer in California?

In Kansas an unscrupulous trailer owner will not register their purchase, so they don't have to pay taxes on the License plate each year. When they sell the trailer, the new owner gets ca...

Re: 1983 Macgregor 25 Sailing capabilities?

Thanks for the information. I also was dreaming about taking taking my Venture 25 out to the coast. I will learn on the Kansas lakes, then see if I want to continue on the coast with something bigger.
