Re: Mast Arch

The arch holders p/n is 6502-1M3. They only mention the spacers, but no description and no part number either. It might be worth giving BWY a call about it. I've never heard of the socket inserts, I'm not sure if this is an issue or not with the arch. Or even if the short sockets have ever been an i...

Re: Mast Arch

I too have the 2004 model and am looking into putting the arch on the aft end. I also got a local shop to price one out using the MacGregor specs. Their estimate is about $240 (CAD) plus taxes. Seems a bit pricey, but I don't think I have many shops around here to chose from. It's probably similar i...

If you decide to keep that name, be sure to pick up a Fortress anchor. That would be super, man

Re: Best trailer-sailing routes in Ontario

From Toronto, I would think a few spots that are within a few hour's drive would be Kingston and the 1000 islands, Lake Simcoe/Couchiching, as well as Georgian Bay and the 30 000 islands. Kingston is a great sailing spot because you can head out to big water and there is almost always a breeze, and ...

Re: What did Santa bring your Mac?

Hi G , that is definitively a great addition u will luv it just doubles the living space of the boat along with the aft stern rail seats J :wink: That's a beautiful setup. I've been trying to get the Dowsar stern rail seats for over year now, but I'm told they lost their supplier, found another one...

Re: Question about boom

It's a topping lift. It's a regular line, 3/16 or so, it does not have to hold much weight. You'll want to make it have two settings so that you have a way to attach it higher when you want extra space and lower when you want to raise, lower or reef the mainsail. BWYachts has a kit, or you can pick ...

Re: Name & Order of Your 3-5 Most Important Mods

Does selling a :macx: for the price of a :macm: and buying a :macm: for the price of a :macx: count? After that, a few simple mods: 1. New Marine traveller head with pressure water and pump out fittings 2. Good old EZ cleats - the best $100 dollars ever spent 3. Moving bimini to stanchion tops 4. Ca...

Re: Portable ice makers?

If you want cold but not necessarily ice, then one of the 12VDC refrigerators might fit the bill. We have the 43qt Edgestar and it works great. With it, you can do away with the ice chest, making extra room that it will need. The power draw seems to be well within the power available on an X. What ...

Re: Mast down clearance height?

Yes, it should. I took mine on a ferry once, with a clearance of 14 feet - no issues.

I think in the mast crutch, you'd be closer to 11 feet, maybe less.

Re: What a $9000 2006 26M looks like

These two images might actually be related. The first one seems to show somw cracking at the top of the daggerboard slot. This will allow water to seep into the cabin top and in the compartment in the ceiling where the trim is now missing. http://i1380.photobucket.com/albums/ah199/turnermatty2/DSC_0...

Re: New Mac26D Owner, With An Unusual Mast?

Ok, so I've been going over the online manuals, confused about the bottom side support wires, and I finally figured out the problem. My mast doesn't have any. The attachment points are there on the roof of the cabin, but there are not any attachment points on the mast. No hole for a bolt either. I'...

Re: Recommendations for newly purchased 26M

If you don't have them, you might want to look at stern rail seats. People that have them appear to really like them. You can get them through BWY ( http://bwyachts.com/web%20catalog%2031203/railings%20and%20swim%20ladders/stern%20railing%20seats.htm ) or Dowsar ( http://dowsar.com/options3.htm ). T...
