Wow! You sound like an ad for Macgregor. Maybe they
could use your story commercially and at least give
you some accessories in trade or just money!!Now all
you need is a Mac 65 for some longer ocean style trips
and a Mac 36 Cat for speedy sailing.
We'll just call you the Morman Sailor. If you were
polygamous, you could have one wife in LA and another
in SB. Maybe having two boats is much simpler than two
Reminds me of an old Alex Guiness movie comedy, maybe
called Captain's Paradise. He was Captain of a ship
sailing from Gibralter to Africa across the straits
and had a demure British wife in Gibraltar and a wild
Spanish bride in whatever country was S. of the
Straits of Gibraltar. Can't remember the exact ending
but I think the wives switched roles and drove him
somewhat crazy, changing his "Paradise" into a living
So how does the Mac 19 handle the ocean surf on light
wind days? Those of us in winter climates envy you if
you're still sailing. I used to be a Hobie dealer and
helped my son get a job working for Hobie in Oceanside
and he's always sending me photos of some of his
"tough" job duties testing some of their products like
their tri hydrofoiler, surfboards, etc.
Happy holidays to all and looking forward to some
early sailing. Mike
