Thinking of buying a MacGregor 26M

Post by cristinacricket » Fri Sep 06, 2019 6:41 pm

We live in Wenatchee, WA and are considering buying a 26M but really want to go out for a sail on one first, with someone who loves theirs and can show us how to sail one well. (We currenty have a Catalina 22). My purest sailing friends say to steer clear of MacGregors but we really like some of the features and want to give them closer consideration! Is there anyone fairly nearby that wants to volunteer? Let's go for a sail!

Come to Chicago (Michigan City really). I'll take you out and there's a casino so you can win the purchase price of your Mac. 8)

Aah! Missed an opportunity. I was ready to meet you at the Apostle Islands , lake superior, and introduce you to the pleasures of MacGregor life, aside from those of a unique sailing place in the world. Unfortunately, the summer vacation is over and I'm stuck in the MidWest for the rest of the other three seasons.
So sorry!

Be sure it has a white hull. Faster than blue hulls.
