This is a link to my Macgregor 26M mods file.
In it you can see some of the thins I have done inide and out.
1) pulley system to assist lifting of dagger board
2)single line reefing system for 3 reefs on Main sail led back to cockpit. Pulleys are secured with rope or additional fixing points on boom. Steel eyes or pulleys hanging off sail crigles allow for good slab reefing and smooth operation.
3) Main halliard led back ( pulley cleats at base of mast to permit free rotation). ...now made part of single loop for down-haul also.
4) autohelm ...Simrad WP32
5) new prop up and down buttons since those on throttle failed
6)net and thick bungee secure fuel tanks and allow storage of bits/pieces
7)Spray hood and cockpit tent....sides and front window zip off to create bimini
8)Vang inverted and led back to cockpit (needs additional mod to keep in the cleat if mast rotates)
9)topping lift led back to cockpit ( and lazy jack tension linked to this)
10)Internal...shine through hull depth and stern mounted log/depth /fish-finder linked to Garmin ( not shown )
11)Galley improvemt...standard front flipped over to create proper under sink cupboard , cut in half to cretae front for sliding larder draw , retaiined by hidden finger catch. New access either end for storage of wter bottles etc ( I have 50L fresh water under rear berth filled by external fill point)
12)table pedestal and draw.....this isheld in place by push fit plastic blocks and can easily be disassembled to create the extra berth.
13) fridge has dedicated socket supplied by diode splitter direct from voltage sensitive relay that connects starter and house batteries....so cant flatten house or starter .....only works when engine running or shore power.
14)real wood plate and bottle storage stained/varnished to match
15)...bungee netting to secure the washboard be a hold-all
16) music centre
Since the photos I have added mast head tricolor which is power through steaming light (using switching diode system) and mast head aerial using unbroken cable that goes through gland in deck and is fed invisbly around interior .
Also a solar powred vent over heads area....works well....and quiet.
Well, ...I think Ill rest a bit now !
