Winter is coming....

I suppose this is a topic that comes up every year, but I'm going to ask anyways (yes I have done a decent amount of searching first). Some of the questions I have regarding winterizing an :macx: are (and I am ignoring the obvious outboard winterization steps): 1)Mast up or down? I can't see any gre...

Re: Speed under motor

When you guys say cabin top do you mean cockpit? I don't know if I would ever have anyone on the cabin top if I was full WOT, ballasted or no. Maybe I'm just too cautious :)

Re: Speed under motor

Thanks. Sounds like I'm about par without having to sand off that paint and redo (a job I was not looking forward to).

I'm half kidding about dumping the ballast, but I just got my Mac and settled on leaving the "training wheels" on for a while :)

Re: Speed under motor

I have a 98 :macx: w/ 60HP Merc. I can get up to around 15MPH with ballast in, 2-3 people on board, lightly loaded (I'm still too scared to run unballasted :) ). The boat has a thick coat of anti fouling paint that is pretty significantly pitted. is 15MPH pretty reasonable in a ballasted configurati...

Re: BWY swim ladder for 26X

Thanks guys. Just curious, it seems to me that since the captain's chair swings open to port side, wouldn't it make more sense to mount this on starboard side? Am I missing something about that?

BWY swim ladder for 26X

Does anyone have a picture of this mounted? They say it mounts outside the rudder and I'd like to see how that is done.

Thanks!

Re: Should I get a Marine Survey?

Yeah I'll make sure the trailer is in decent shape, but I am planning on having a custom dual axle trailer made for next season anyways.

Thanks again everyone!

Re: Should I get a Marine Survey?

Thanks everyone - great advice and confirms my suspicions. Is testing equipment for outboards (compression test, etc) typically portable for dockside service? Also, is it possible to inspect the centerboard while the boat is on the stock macgregor trailer? (ie. is it free to swing down enough to ins...

Should I get a Marine Survey?

I've got my eye on a '96 26X that appears, to my eye, to be in very good condition. No visible repairs on the hull, no stress fractures up top, no significant breaks on the inside liner, doesn't smell musty inside, no evidence of water inside any of the storage compartments. The Mast hardware appear...

Re: Any news on the Tattoo 22?

Thanks. Isn't that the same price as the 26? I was hoping it would be somewhat cheaper. I suppose it's just a guess at this point.

Any news on the Tattoo 22?

Hi all - just wondering if anyone has any news on the Tattoo 22 - specifically pricing and availability.

Is it reasonable to expect it will be less expensive than a Tattoo 26?

Thanks!
