3 sails; working jib, mainsail, 150 genoa, all in excellent condition, original, 10 years old, always covered or stored, complete with matching "black" suite of mainsail cover/sail bag.
Trailer included, "like-new" appearance, no damage, repainted black,
new wheel inner and outer bearings and bearing races, and new seals, all
improvements recent weeks, all the result of preventative maintenance and not
failure. Tires have "like-new" tread, good appearance, however I'd recommend
having a good spare for very long distance transit. The trailer is the
"surge brake" model, however I pull it with a large vehicle and don't need
the surge brakes, therefore I removed the rusty brake assemblies rather than
replacing them. New brake assemblies and brake shoes should restore the
surge brake function. I do not sell the trailer "with surge brakes
functional," except with work-out with the buyer. Surge brakes on the
trailer were an optional addition to the trailer by Macgregor anyway. Brand
new crank jack/support wheel installed on trailer tongue/frame, swings up
and locks in place for transit. Fully functional brake and running lights, and turn indicators.
Motor was "new" in 1993, Mercury 8 hp, excellent "like-new" appearance, has been used no more than 50-75 hrs of total operation. I haven't done many extended motoring cruises. I am prepared to offer and stand behind a "motor only, limited but substantial" 90 day personal warranty of the motor, conditions of warranty to be worked-out "in writing" with buyer. The motor usually cranks "first or second pull." After it's run a few minutes, if you shut it off a 5 year-old could re-crank it with one pull.
original deep discharge marine battery, condition unknown and
assumed bad, battery in "as is" condition of sale. I hardly ever used the
battery. I am a "day only," "fair-weather only" sailor.
Has been in salt water, but not in the recent 4 years, plenty of
freshwater river/lake launches available nearby, lakes Martin and Jordan in
south central Alabama, and the Alabama river system. Boat never left in the
water more than 4 days at a span, lives on the trailer on a concrete ramp at
outboard type motor stand with handles and rollers (you'll love this!)
anchor and 200 ft of anchor rope
camper pop top, excellent "like new" condition
alum telescoping boat pole
assorted dock lines
dockside electrical connection and cable
5 rubber fenders
porta potti, "like new" condition
all original interior cloth cushions and exterior cockpit vinyl cushions,
all in good condition, I'd say a "6" at least on a 1-10 scale, not torn or
badly stained, modestly faded.
stern locker has installed "marine fuel grade" vent hose and through-hull
mounted vent for ventilation of semi-permanent below deck fuel tank. You may
use a modified fuel tank below deck, and use the ventilation system, or you
may use a top-deck standard tank. Comes with my modified tank which can be
used either below or above deck.
hull and gelcoat in very good condition, excellent "street" and "dockside" appearance, only minor scratches and nicks in the hull, never damaged, never repaired, never leaked, water ballast tank fully fuctional with no leaks and fully functional valve/plug/seal.
The pictures should convey a message that the boat/trailer/motor is very
much in "like new" condition and has been preserved/maintained/serviced. I
love sailing, but I have a small farm and don't have the time for sailing
that I used to have. Thank you. I can email any other pictures a potential
buyer could want.
David at Sailing Texas dot com has provided an invaluable service in the
marketing of my 1993 Macgregor 26S. Even though a sale came via another
channel, referring potential buyers to my Sailing Texas page provided not
only additional pictures, but also another opportunity to write ad text for
their review. The ad was entered about 10/1/03 and I've had almost 30
inquiries from Sailing Texas and other sites. Good job!
