Re: if you have bought the cockpit enclosure ? was it worth

Re: Is there another Macgregor site?

Two years after not owning my mac, I am stil reading this site for tips i can bring on my other boats.

I think that pretty speaks of utility and a comfortable exchange of information on this site. Even when I disagree.

Re: Potable Water and Epoxy

This will keep the amount of ballast constant, with no sloshing. tried it, doesnt work, hull is not designed for those kind of pressures........
