mac or slug –
PS I would switch the engine off for the bits where I filmed the birds or the seals or the sunsets or the beautiful wooden boats
stick with the slug – you know you love her really …
KTL is about you AND the slug…. not some other vessel … or some other presenter.
*splutter*…. A Mac 26?!!!!
My god no! I had a look around one of these years ago and I consider them to be an affront to the sea. The sea was looking lumpy in that video, why? Because the gods themselves knew how vile a vessel the Mac26 is and wanted to smite if from the face of the planet :)
A sterile, soul less, tupperware petri dish vs the full blown character (and now celebrity) that is the Slug.
No contest… Slug wins in the beauty stakes and in every other area over the Mac 26.
the slug might appear to have more character as a boat
but that might be just because it is a product of a certain time in yacht design history.
The first flowering of Fibre Glass – a heavy lay for a heavy little boat – like the early westerlies.
A mac is, I put it to you, a classic yacht of its time too.
The fact that so many thousands of them have been produced and are being enjoyed means that many will survive.
In addition, if you can find one that has spent most of its life sitting on a trailer beside some-one house – the old ones can be almost like new.
Its my guess that in 500 years time its the mac that will represent the great age of small plastic yachts.
that aside – my guess is the audience for the series would grow because there are so many mac owners out there.
Mind you – I would hate to give up the tiller – I don’t think I would like wheel steering that much.
