I think it is neat that someone in the entertainment industry somewhere thought our boats were a desirable setting for a foray of this sort. Having never been a cultural trend setter myself, and no doubt never will be, it is nice knowing that the boat we love seems "dramatic" to folks that are focused on image making and jazzing things up. Yes, my wife, also, came into my study to check out the loud music that is not my accustomed genre. After watching the video, she said, "What MacGregor; I didn't see a MacGregor; were those girls on a MacGregor, really!" She only picked up on the MacGregor angle the second time around. I sent the link to our son, referring to it as "neat boat video", and he replied, "what boat"! I explained it to him, and he responded that he would need to watch the video multiple times to check out the boat part! I don't get many chances to be "cool" these days, so I'll take what I can get! Thanks for the link! :wink: :macx:

They spent all the production money on the models, had to settle for a cheaper boat. Best bang for the buck!

Apparently it's polished using a special polisher.

Yeah...I tried hard to convince my wife I was only watching this video for the boat....."Honey, it's like the excellent articles in Playboy!"

She didn't buy it :(

On a more serious note, that video (excluding the talent) was a good way to show my wife what I'd like to do with our boat in South Florida in the future.

I love zipping around without the mast

Fun stuff 8)

Nice view without the mast. Mainsail. Head sail maybe furled or on deck. Shrouds. Everything gone

Makes for a very different experience

It will be hard to beat that video. I thought that the X under power looked great. The X is a very stylish design. I posted a couple of pic's of Seadreams under the mods page "exterior". Mac Trawler Tower. It shows my X with the trawler mast I made for it. It turns a lot of heads.

Video was nice, not sailable with twin Biminies, Rocks and rolls at anchorage. Best have a reverse trisail forward to reduce roll.(called a steading Sail with low cut Jib). Nice clean waters with a Babe to Boot.(cranks my Tractor).

Anyone know where to get those mods and what they might cost?
I know - if I have to ask, I can't afford them.

Hey DanO,
Do you mean the trawler tower or the two "mod"els in the video? :P I made mine. I'd be willing to tell you how to do it if you drop me a PM.

If you made your own two models then you are an evil genius - and please show me how to duplicate my own.
