I found a good deal on a 70's MacGregor
Venture 17. I managed to get the price
down to 900$ with trailer and no motor
. The boat seems in good condition. The keel
has some cracks in it, deck
is in good condition. Has a colapsable furler
with 3 sails
in good condition.
I currently have an Evans 16 sailboat, it has an open cabin
, the trailer is not so good because it makes the boat quite wobbly when trailered. I dont have a spare tire for this trailer. No furler
, the keel
is good. Also, my main has no reefing points. The Evans 16 is a nice boat with a very wide and spacious deck
, at its narrowest is 6foot where the macgregor
is 5. The beam on the macgregor is 6.3ft as the evans is 6.8.
I am basically trying to decide if i should get the Venture 17 and sell my boat.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
