Is there a Forum link that shows, one two, three, the sequential steps, ie How to Post Photos
??
thx

Stuart, you seem to be having issues all right, but I'm not sure why. Posting photos is really quite easy. I suspect from you above post that once in 'Go Advanced', you are not scrolling down past the red band labelled 'Additional Options', and clicking on the 'Manage Attachments' button. Do that, and then follow what I said above should solve your problem.
Clicking on the paper-clip icon at the very top in that same 'advanced' window also brings up the 'Choose File' option I note, having tried it myself.
How are you doing now..?

Click Go Advanced, scroll down to where you see "Manage Attachments," click on that and you will see this.

Use the pop up box to select your photo files. Be mindful of the size limitations. After selecting the photos click upload. When the upload is finished the files will be automatically added to your post. Close the pop up and submit your post.

Welcome aboard TF
Congrats on the pics... it's kinda like riding a bike seems difficult but only at first. You will be a pro in no time.
I see in the pic you DO have a mast...of sorts and have lost the sails.
I made a cockpit sun shade for a marina buddy w a McGregor but of course he had a mast & boom and it used the boom for support... sorry no help.
Are you planning on DIY canvas?

Cool trawler you have.....yes I had a 5' aluminum spar to support the roll up sun shade, place for antenna, etc
Not sure how I will enclose the cockpit on the Mac, as the steering pedestal has been removed and wheel now on right bulkhead in cockpit, so have to see how far forward the top will have to be placed. I can't be in the sun anymore, it's hats and stay in the shade, so I will be putting some kind of bimini or top on the boat, also ideally sides.

San Francisco Bay in the summer gets frisky, so complete enclosure is desirable ....also have to factor in trailering and time and ease to remove and re install any canvas.
Am thinking for about the same price I can consider a permanent, light, airy enclosure that does not look too weird...
Have not bought the boat yet, engine being given complete service at the moment, new impeller, check tilt, change oils, etc.
Will keep you posted.

Cheers
Stuart

Welcome to the forum!

Hope you post some pics of the Macgregor mods.

While I'm not a fan on the water ballast system, it sure is an interesting boat. Here is a promo video that I found.

If I was on the water, and saw a Macgregor, on plane, it definitely would be a heck of a surprise!

Hi Jim,
Completely agree. Saw a Mac 26 on SF Bay once without the rig and it looked odd, but the people were happy, it was far more maneuverable than nearly all the other boats.
Attached, pictures, (hopefully), of the boat (not mine) and one with a nice interior. Water ballast I will see if needed just as a power boat. Rudders down my guess more control at low speeds, we'll see on all this, main thing is to make the cockpit self enclosed for sun protection, warmth, and not have to spend too much time for taking any canvas down and up for trailering.
Cheers
Stuart

Going back to your first question, about finding the "search" option. Here's a tip that can help any user of the Web in similar situations: On any web page, do CTRL+F, and you'll get a search function in your browser that will search all the text on the page. It even works when you've got a PDF displayed, like a users manual or something. Very, very handy tool.

I knew a couple with a MacGregor26 -- They'd named their dog Mac:


Mac is on the left and my First Mate is Skipper (on the right)

The owners Glenn and Joanne did what you propose Even Kiehl. IF memory serves me, they have a couple hundred watts of solar above the outboard, and I'm not certain what is over the cockpit. It's been years and I didn't take a picture after they took off the mast.

They used their boat in much the same way you propose.

Good luck. And continued success in your boating life.


This is Gypsy off Bahia Honda in the Florida Keys: (before they removed her mast)
