    Questions regarding M26c vinyl pop-top cover

    Thanks again. I really like both ideas, all three actually...two with screening, wondering where one gets screening? And the velcro idea as well....have to look for a quantity of that. Also the idea of installing "snap on" gizmo's to the vinyl cover is note worthy.....sure do appreciate...

    Questions regarding M26c vinyl pop-top cover

    George thanks for the reply! Yup, here in Michigan the mosquitoes can be atrocious...and one or two ear buzzers when we're trying to get some zzzzzzz kinda takes the joy out of the experience ;o)... There might be a way to seal it down a bit better. I also notice a big bug gap between the...

    Questions regarding M26c vinyl pop-top cover

    My "new" Mac 1994 swing keel boat came with the cover for the pop-top. It has a line around the base of it, not sure where or how it ties down and is mounted... I have been trying to install the cover, but I'm not finding a way to really seal it out. Are there printed instructions for...

    Which long shaft OB would you choose for the 26S or D? The 20" or 25"?

    Electric charging is big and important. I guess one must keep the alternator connected to the battery or one loses the alternator...not good... Any way I'd love to hook up a long shaft Merc onto a raise-able motor mount but doubt if i'd have the room to swing it up for road clearance as the...

    Which long shaft OB would you choose for the 26S or D? The 20" or 25"?

    Andy I'm thinking of the Merc 9.9 command thrust 25" shaft... Is that the one you have? Which year? I'm asking because I have the push pit stainless railing around the cockpit and wonder if it fits under it when you tilt the motor all the way back for trailering? Thanks so much for your...

    Which long shaft OB would you choose for the 26S or D? The 20" or 25"?

    Andy, is the height of the mount "all the way down" about the same height as the permanent mount on the transom or is it higher or lower than that? Was it difficult to mount the Garelick motor mount on the transom with the cut away? I wonder how you mounted it? And where you mounted it? I...

    Mac 26s wiring questions...

    Thanks much for your replies! We live near Bay City, Mi. I was going to put the power inlet on the stbd side adjacent to the head area, but if the boat heeled way over the box might submerge. Placing it in the laz is tempting but because the power line is 40 feet I wonder if it would...

    Which long shaft OB would you choose for the 26S or D? The 20" or 25"?

    The 20" seems long enough and is not to deep to enjoy the shallow draft ability that these Macs are known for. But in severe steep waves the 25" would be less prone to "hobby horse" while it would be a disadvantage in shallow water with the extra 5 inches of draft. What's been your...

    Mac 26s wiring questions...

    New owner of a 26s. Wonder where you've entered your 110v marina cable, fuse box, etc. We're thinking placing these in the head area with a 110v outlet into the galley area and one in the v berth. Also how and where have you hidden wiring into various parts of the boat without having them...
