This is the complete roller furling system for all MacGregor models. You will also need the deck hardware to lead the control line to the cockpit and a headstay compatible with the furler. We can provide you with both. Your headstay must have a standard turnbuckle at the bottom and a swaged threaded stud on the bottom end, not a loop. The luff is not returnable.

You also may be interested in the ball bearing upgrade for the furling drum. This is a replacement metal ball bearing. ALthough it's not a night and day" difference between the standard bearing and the ball bearing it is a nice upgrade and truly the only way to get maximum performance and ease of use out of the CDI flexible furler system.

Fits V21, V22, V222, V23. Does not have sail feed slot cut or any holes for hardware drilled. Must be shipped motor freight, call for quote, disregard quoted shipping on website. Masts are shipped in 2 pieces with a splice / reinforcement piece at the spreaders. Mast packaging fee: $150

Select appropriate options if you'd like the mast drilled for hardware installation and/or notched for the sail feed slot.

We recommend buying a new mast foot plate with a new mast so we can drill the holes to match up correctly.

The bronze winches are a nice upgrade, offering the same reliable functionality with a more traditional aesthetic. If you upgrade to the bronze winches please allow an extra few weeks for shipment, as they are a special order for us and take some time to get.

THIS LUFF FITS THE CDI UNIT ONLY. This is the plastic headfoil for the CDI, Cruising Design, roller furling units. This plastic luff is what the headsail rolls up onto, the headstay is inside. Has two groves, one on each side, for sail. Luff is not returnable.
In some cases the shipping charge may be higher than the estimate. We will contact you if this happens.

This boom fits all Venture and MacGregor models through 1987 except the V-24 and V-224 (these boats had an 11' long boom which is no longer available). We will cut to length for models with boom lengths under 10'. Must be shipped motor freight, expect high shipping charges and a $30 special packaging fee. The original size boom section is no longer available. We are using the same section as the mast, this will require that you also replace your boom end caps with the new part, boom end cap large.

This is the newer winch style mast raising system for use on all MacGregor and Venture boats except the 26M. This system can be used if you don't have a mast raiser at all or if you want to update a block and tackle style system to the newer winch style.

Most boats will need some additional hardware, especially if you don't have any mast raiser at all now. Be sure to read the "Extended Information" section before you order! If the wrong parts are ordered from the drop-down options the customer will be responsible for return shipping charges and the shipping of the correct parts.

This system is very specific to the MacGregor Mast and MacGregor hardware and is not sold for or intended to be used on other brands of boats.

ProSportHD Generation 4 On-Board Marine Battery Chargers incorporate all-digital microprocessor control. The ProSportHD Series provides unique automatic installation feedback with its exclusive "System Check OK" and individual "Battery Bank Trouble" LED indicators which eliminate time consuming troubleshooting by clearly indicating system and battery connections are OK, or if a fault is present on a specific battery bank.
After fully charging and conditioning batteries, ProSport’s Energy Saver Mode will monitor and automatically maintain batteries in a full state of charge, resulting in maximum reserve power performance and lower AC power consumption and operating costs.
ProSport incorporates Distributed-On-Demand™ Charging technology, taking 100% of the available charging amps and distributing them to any one or a combination of all batteries as needed for faster charging.
Each ProSport model has 4 digitally selectable charge profiles including a once-a-month storage reconditioning mode for extending battery life.

The 12 Amp model is adequate for most systems with 2 battery banks each having 1 or 2 standard size batteries, for faster charging on larger battery banks choose the 20 Amp model.

We recommend this telescoping pole (6'-12') for all Macgregor models. While Forespar says to use a larger size, we have found that the larger pole is too heavy to use in light wind without the complexity of a pole lift line. An added benefit is that if you completely lose control of things in a big blow, the plastic end fitting will break, acting as a sort of "fuse". These fittings are inexpensive and easy to replace. We stock these poles with latch fittings on both ends as we have found the "spike" style poles tend to come out of the sail grommet if the sail shakes a lot or goes slack. Instead latch securely onto the leeward sheet.

Everything is included in this kit for all boats except for 26M. If you have a 26M you must add the additional mast padeye bracket.

Because of the length this item ships oversize, and is subject to an additional $25 shipping charge. If we are able to get a cheaper shipping rate we will manually adjust your invoice accordingly.

Upgrade your rigging without going to the extreme with a set of Samson MLX3 halyards. See "technical specs" to check out the details on the MLX3 line.

Available in all the pictured colors, please specify which color you'd like for main halyard and which for jib/genoa halyard in the "order notes" section (when you place the order).

ROLLER FURLING, CDI, BALL BEARING UPGRADE BOOM VANG KIT, ALL BUT 26M PORTA POTTIE, W/MOUNTING BRACKET
BOOM VANG KIT, ALL BUT 26M
Our Price: $159.00

This is a replacement metal ball bearing for the FF2 furling unit. Although it's not a "night and day" difference between the standard bearing and the ball bearing, it is a nice upgrade and truly the only way to get maximum performance and ease of use out of the CDI flexible furler system.

If you're having trouble with rolling and unrolling your furling unit we suggest first looking at replacing the furler control line. Sometimes the line is too big (should be 3/16") or it's just old and that's why the furler is getting stuck. If your line is good but you're still wanting a system that rolls more easily, then the ball bearing upgrade is probably worth it.

For more detailed information on the replacement parts see the CDI FF2 Manual by following this link. This part is part "E" in the diagram.

This kit gives you all the blocks, line and hardware to install a Boom Vang on any Mac except the 26M (use kit 3301-1M0). Does not work with early boats equipped with the roller reefing boom when the sail is actually reefed. Most boats already have the holes drilled in the mast and boom for the attachment bolts. If yours does not, you will have to drill two 1/4" holes.

Porta Potty in 2.5 gallon holding tank and 2.3 gallon fresh water supply. Color: Parchment Tan. Includes mounting brackets. Top half is fresh water, bottom half for waste. Side latches lock firmly in place for added safety.

Automatically Combines or Isolates Battery Banks, no more old fashioned 1, 2, Both switch!

This convenient and affordable kit gives you both an automatic charging relay and a dual purpose battery disconnect switch. The simple to use switch has 3 positions, OFF, ON, and COMBINED. OFF disconnects all loads from BOTH the engine and house batteries. ON connects the engine to the engine battery and the house loads to the house battery. Combined connects both batteries together to all loads to allow emergency engine starting from the house battery. Before now it took 3 switches and a bunch of wiring to provide these functions.
The Automatic Charging Relays combines batteries during charging, but keeps them separated when not charging and during engine cranking (optionally), to protect sensitive electronics.

New style plastic replacement cup for the CDI FF2 roller furling system, the Stainless cup is no longer available (new picture coming soon). This is the cup only, the main plastic bearing is a separate part.

For more detailed information on the replacement parts see the CDI FF2 Manual by following this link. This part is CDI part #1807 or "F" in the diagram.

KEEL, WINCH W/HANDLE
Our Price: $95.00

This is a great upgrade for any older boat with loose spreaders that can fold up against the mast. Greatly improves both the strength and stiffness of the rig, making it much easier to get good headstay tension. Improved headstay tension means improved upwind performance. Fits 3.5" X 4" teardrop style mast (1967 thru 2003). Most 26X models came with rigid spreaders standard, some early boats did not.

This kit modifies the boom so you can reef the sail from the cockpit. Your mainsail must have slides and jacklines, or slides and a mast gate cover to work properly. With just slides and no jacklines or mast gate cover, you will need to remove 1 or 2 slides from the mast to reef. Works great with your halyards led aft to the cockpit. An easy way to update your old roller boom to a more modern system.


Many different styles of keel winches were used over the years. This model replaces all. Mounting holes in boat may need to be re-drilled. Winch is Zinc plated for corrosion resistance.

Excellent heater for boats, cars, anything that may sit exposed to the elements for a time in cold/wet conditions. Most of the Blue Water Yachts team even uses these in our personal boats.

The Stor-Dry low wattage warm air circulator is the "must have" product for the winterization season. This dual action air dryer uses the ideal combination of a safe, low wattage heating element and an internal fan to both heat and circulate the air. The heat and circulation lower the relative humidity and prevent stale air pockets which, in turn, prevents mold or mildew from forming on the interior surfaces of the boat. This item operates on 120 volts, you will need a voltage converter for use in countries with 220V - 230V power. Note: The Stor-Dry is NOT ignition protected and should not be used in engine compartments with gasoline engines. • The perfect solution for fighting mildew in enclosed spaces • Great for boat storage • Blower for air circulation and superior performance over heating element only products • Maintenance-free - years of trouble-free use • Silent operation • Anodized, brushed aluminum housing • Low power consumption - less than a 100W light bulb • 110/120 volts AC • Each unit is effective for 1,000 ft³ of cabin volume • Dimensions: 4-1/2"H x 10" Dia. • 2 year warranty
