• Mobile App For Android Now Online!

    Download it here. The app is searchable in the Google Play Store under Sailboat Owners.

    Sorry iPhone/iPad users, we are still waiting on Apple. :(

    Click the X in the upper right corner to make this go away

New downloads section (manuals, drawings, specs, etc)

It's only taken a few years, but we've finally added a more logical section for downloads like owner manuals, equipment manuals, drawings, etc.

To find the data specific to your boat model to Boat Info -> your boat model -> Downloads. The Downloads link can be found at the bottom of the list of menu items. All PDF files specific to your boat will be found there.

If you wish to upload files, click the Upload link shown. The system will handle files up to 35 Mb, which was more than enough for everything I threw at it today.

Please note: you must be logged into upload or download files, and files MUST be in PDF format. No text docs, Word or Excel files, image files, etc. PDF's only.

Articles with photos about upgrades to your boat should still be posted to the Modifications section. This is for reference material only.

In addition, we have added another menu item under Boat Info that is for PDF file uploads/downloads of information that is not specific to certain boat models. This would include manuals for Yanmar engines or other equipment, as well as any other reference material. Examples include Seaward stove manuals, cdi furler instructions, a float plan form, rig tuning instructions, etc.

The nav tab called "Reference" has been removed and all popular content has been moved under Boat Info. The links to other boating sites have been removed as Google does a pretty decent job of that and I doubt we can handle it any better.

As always, please let me know if you find any bugs or have suggestions on how to improve this.

I love the new section...
maybe sometime in the future in your spare time (LOL) it could be categorized into.... engines and motors,... inner cabin appliances and electrical components,... deck hardware and rigging,... and trailer.
I can see the current "list" becoming very long, very soon, and these are 4 simple, yet fairly well defined groups that could help in quickly locating something in particular we may be looking for. just a suggestion.....:D

Look under the Boat Info tab. Some is filed by specific model, but there is much more than is under Boat Info -> Downloads

No. Message access was disabled on the old software, but they should all be here, under the envelope in upper right corner.

This is in the wrong thread and once you read it I'm going to move or delete it, FYI.

Does anyone know if there is still a site hosting the 5 minute video on the 26C that Macgregor produced? I can't find a link. I want to point to it, not download it. Thanks.

Nope. There's some postings in the Mac Forum regarding this, if you use that "quick search" box in the upper right. Type in "steering wheel Mac 25".
