We've decided to step up from our 18' day sailer. We want to cruise rather than so much teeth clinching excitement. We're looking for any comments or suggestions about buying a Macgregor 26x or similar boats. The Buccaneer is easy to launch and very fast, but my wife and I want a boat to spend weekends on with enough room for a couple of guests. I've heard a lot of good things about the Mac 26x, sounds like it's big enough, but I don't know what models Catalina, O`day, or others have that are comparable.
