Re: Beginner in a Macgregor-Venture 25 on Lake MI
PM me if you want I can plan to go out on a sail with you and show you the ropes on that boat and give you some performance tips. It is basically my boat with 2 foot more in the cockpit. I have done this twice now with new Venture owners. Just thought I would offer.

I can vouch for gedaggett, while not personally, but he has been on this and other forums and does excellent mechanical work. He took a free wreck of a boat and made it much nicer so he knows the boats. He is a good source of advice for sailing on a budget on Lake Michigan. And I am sure if he was an ax murder or anything we would have heard about it!
