I do like things clean and whilst the Mac 26X I bought last week wasn’t filthy it still needed a scrub. The original cockpit seat covers whilst not so dirty you wouldn’t use them showed dirt in the “veins” of the 1999 Mac vinyl. Not sure how they’d hold up to a washing machine I decided to go old school (can’t believe how much I use that term now, urgh 🥴) and employ a 100 year old washing posser from my collection of antiques. I know one thing, being a “domestic 100 years ago must have sucked. Anyway, 15 minutes of sloshing and burping and plunging and sweating like crazy I think I’ve got enough dirt off to throw them in the 2018 Maytag. You probably don’t need a picture of that 🤔.
I imagine they’ll come out pretty much the same but I’ll know I gave it a go. Results are yet to be seen. Good thing is it looks like the seat sponges were replaced at some point.
Welcome to the home of the Macgregor Yacht Club of British Columbia. We are a group of present and past Macgregor Yacht and Tattoo Yacht owners. Most of our members are in British Columbia, Canada, although we do have members from other places in Canada and the USA.
We organize on and off the water activities for owners of Macgregor and Tattoo boats; regattas, cruises, flotillas and our annual all member get together ‘MacRendezvous’. Members share tips, ideas, and hard-come-by knowledge about how to maximize the joy of owning these wonderfully affordable boats.
The basic, free sections of this website is open for all to enjoy.
You can register for free to have additional access to public forum where you can communicate with the club and can be included in emails that the club sends to members and registered users related to upcoming activities.
MYCBC membership provides you with full access to all areas of the website and the ability to participate in all activities. The modest, annual membership fee is $65 for the first year (which includes a club burgie and welcome package) and $35 per year thereafter. Membership in the club is recognized at marine stores and marinas for discounts on supplies and moorage. We also have negotiated discount insurance coverage for members. The saving you can expect will pay back your membership fee manyfold.
