Good Begginer Boat, does not head into the wind very effeciently but seems to hold its own downwind. This is the first sailboat I have owned beyond small 13' boats. In general im quite pleased with the performace for its price.

[This review was originally posted in the Mac 23 section. After further research I determined the title info was wrong and I really have a Mac/Venture 21.] Recently purchased boat. Texas Title information simply states "McGregor" [sic] and length as "23 feet." I have scoured the boat for additional information and have found none. My unfamiliarity with these boats has led me to assume it must be a Venture 23. Can anyone confirm my assumption? Where can I find an owner's manual? Is MacGregor, or anyone else, still making parts/sails for this model? Any other insights, info would be appreciated. I have sailed the boat(on a lake) three times since purchase, once in 20 mph winds with gusts to 30. It performed well with the main and large original Macgregor issue genny up (110%, I think)and when hit with a strong unexpected gust on a beam reach, went up on the leeward rail, the rudder breached, and the boat spun into the wind and sat right back down, pretty forgiving for a novice sailor such as myself. Swing keel, home-made mast raising kit by previous owner.
