There used to be a video on Macgregorsowners.com , a guy had gotten the mast raising down to 20 minutes. You might do a search on Utube.com. Launching and recovering was covered in a Macgregor film the dealers show. I am sure you would get that online too. If your new at raising and lowering, do it several times at home without obstructions. Always put the “baby stays” on, once i didn’t and the wind came up and the mast went over to one side. It might take five minutes to install them, but you need them. Make a checklist of things that have to be done and at what stage of raising. If there are specific questions, post here and you will get some answers.

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.
