Re: Weighed our 2003 26X today.

I found this thread interesting. I have a 2002 :macx: on its original trailer. I also have a 2002 F550 diesel 4x4 so towing and launching/retrieving are not an issue except for the underrated stock trailer limits. (Still only seats 6) What intrigues me is our non US brothers and sisters rules and at...

Re: Hello from San Diego

Went on a fairly long trip last Sunday. Mission Bay to Glorietta Bay in Coronado and back. Mostly motored due to time constraints and wanting to test my range. Used a little more fuel than I thought but close. I wimped out and bought fuel (unnecessarily) just to be sure. It was fairly rough with a f...

Re: Upgrade already?

It was funny - I was trying to talk the kids into buying a tube while we were out this weekend for their benefit. Just as I was mentioning it, a powerboat went by with a giant couch strapped to the back. It flipped and scattered the riders all over. They promptly said no and went back to sulking :P ...

Re: What will you miss most about your Mac when you size up to another boat?

The only thing I wouldn't miss is the financial state that led me to the Mac. If I were already wealthy enough to buy a "better" boat, look at all I would have missed. These are great boats. More versatile than any other (except a flying boat) but that's an entirely different versatility. A well kep...

Re: Hello from San Diego

I'm slipped in mission bay. I've heard that about a seafood truck in mission valley but have yet to ...

Re: Using the main sheet as safety while raising mast
