The MacGregor 26X, 1996 to 2004, marked a major change from the earlier "classic" M26 models by allowing a relatively huge outboard engine that essentially turned the 26X into a powerboat with a mast. Earlier models typically carried outboards as low as 5 or 6 HP (max. 10 HP), but the 26X now took up to 50 HP.
Economical replacement Working Jib for all MacGregor 26X Models Made 1995 - 2003 with roller furling. Made with #6 luff tape (3/16" dia.) and fits most common furling units like CDI, Harken, and Profurl. It does NOT fit MacGregor Classic S and D models. This MacGregor Furling Jib is a duplicate of the now out of production original factory sail.
We just bought a 1995 MacGregor 26S. There are no travelers like our previous boat had. We would like a picture of how to rig it properly and how to adjust the mast tension, spreaders and etc.\u000B\u000BThanks.
