      Hi Richard,
      I wish I could tell you more but I have only used my 19 twice.  Then winter set in and I'm in the process of eye surgery.  So far I think the boat does a reasonable job of sailing and powering.  It might take a while to get used to tiller steering at high speed, though.  I haven't been in anything but small lake conditions with little wind, so I have no experience otherwise in this boat.  If it is anything like the other MacGregors I have had, it should do fine.
      Maybe some others on the list can tell you more.  So far I would say 'GO FOR IT".  Geaux Tigers.

      Hey Ken, I'm in Covington and have been considering a 19 for a while and have a few questions if you don't mind.
       How does it handle under power vs a traditional runabout
       I would use it 50/50 fishing marsh/coastal rigs to about 10miles offshore and sailing lake Pontchatrain/ Destin area.
       thanks in advance

      I am seriously considering adding a CDI FF2 furler to my 19. Probably
      put the Genoa on it. A few questions:

      Do the jib sheets for the genoa go outside the side stays? Mine have
      turning blocks and I am only guessing how to set it up. Will the
      sheets work properly with a furler? Suggestions?

      Do furlers work ok on the 19? What things should I consider?

      Is there plenty of room on the foredeck for the furler drum?

      Anything else?

      Who has the best price on CDI furlers?

      Ken Abrahams, Lake Charles, La
