Scratches - yeah, same when I received my :macm:
Mine was delivered by being towed behind a pickup truck across country. So, my "new" trailer already had several thousand miles on it when delivered :P
The inside had stuff thrown all over the place including loose hardware. The one remaining trailer light was in the process of falling apart. The other was somewhere between CA and MD.
Welcome to MAC/TAT ownership :)
These scrathes look like the are from the factory and yes, i think the windows are like the later model macs. Is there a mod for improving the look of the windows?
Like i said, pretty happy with the boat. Just need to sail it a bit more. It's moored at the back of the house on an airdock that i bought for it. No need to antifoul which is good. Just need to remember to empty the water ballast before lifting her out of the water as the airdock has a limited lift capacity.ri
Trying to work out the photo thing so pictures to come later.

In your pic
Your furled headsail looks very slack
Means your forestay inside that furler is far too loose
Should look tight and straight with no bend from top to bottom
I know FF is for flex furler but... that is not what it is for LOL

With that much slop, your mast will bounce around.

I think it's 65. Isn't that bad. Can't bloody remember. Took it out into the ocean off the Gold Coast at the weekend. The boat performed extremely well. The girls loved it so much they fell asleep down below.
