Re: Lower Cape Fear Mac Roundup

I was talking to Rob, (a guy who is taking delivery on his '02 26x this week) about doing this again.

The last 2 years I've been busy with our ERP implementation, but I'm launching my warehouse in 2 weeks.

I'm going to plan a new one this year, does early June work?

Re: "Sub $600 Autopilot" Progress

Just throwing my name in the ring again. At this point, I don't think it even has to be "Sub $600".

From the beta units I've seen, and the reports of the recent upgrades it sounds like if its priced like an EV-100 it's still a better deal.

Re: Annapolis Boat Show-April 28 – 30, 2017

October is a bad time for me usually so I'll plan on April.

Ron, that's awesome! I hope we get to see you guys!

I had used some of my points to grab the Hilton Double Tree right next to Naval Academy just to be safe.

Re: It's why they call it sailing...Not cruising

As for being slow on the tack, I actually prefer to let the foresail backhaul for a little bit to help push the nose around a bit faster so I don't stall. Anyone else do this? Also, I had a 110 job and replaced with 150 genoa; I loved sailing my Jib but hated I got left behind from Macs with Genoas....

Re: An introduction... and request for advice.

If you buy an X or M as your first sail boat to learn in, you'll be in very good company. These boats are easy to sail and very, very forgiving....plus with in Power Boat mode they're extremely versatile. I tell my friends all the time, it's the best boat for a family that has a schedule. I can take...

Re: Flipping a Macgregor

So I'll ask for us :macx: 's with Billy Boxes.

Do you think that adds a lot of risk? We can't block out water from a knock down as effectively?

Re: Main Halyard aft ... like a Cat!

Another dumb question. Do Inrocet these to the mast or drill holes and use bolts?

Re: Lower Cape Fear Mac Roundup

Hey guys, I'm really sorry but the timeline for my project was adjusted and 4/29 is no longer a doable time for me as a 3 day weekend. I might be able to squeeze an overnight.

Would a later time in early June work better for some people?
