Re: Not sure if I should buy this boat...

I got a 1976 Venture 25 ( MacGregor ) with trailer and all sails for $100 on craigs list. Everything I needed to get on the water minus an outboard. I replaced the keel bolt just because it was an unknown and found the original to be in great shape. Look around and you can find a better deal. My boat looks like it lived on the trailer in a barn most of its life, cleaned up nice, no sun damage. I would go with a more common boat, easy to find sails and parts.

Re: Not sure if I should buy this boat...

Always wanted a Leonhard Mader GmbH but I never could find one in the right size. All the ones I saw were left handed too. If they had made a 12volt version I could have modified it for my use. But with the dogs being so small, it would have been useless anyway I suppose.
