I bought a 1979 Venture 25 a month ago and still have not had her out on the water since I'm a rank beginner and need to find out how to test the older model 8hp Mariner motor and how to rig the boat. When I saw that you have a copy of the handbook, I was thrilled. Any thoughts on sailing, rigging, making improvements would be greatly appreciated. Information is plentiful on the 26's, it seems, but I'm not sure how much of that is applicable to the 25. I'd love to hear from you and would be enormously grateful if you would copy and fax the handbook to me. Thank you!
