I have an original 1975 price list and Venture brochures that I tried to post for you but they are .pdf files and the forum will only let me post jpegs. If you want to contact me in a private message w/your email address I can send them to you.
In looking at 2 different V21 brochure pages it is apparent that the earlier ones were rigged differently than the later models. The earlier boats had a fractional rig with no spreaders. An optional forestay to the masthead allowed use of a larger genoa. I don't know if the inner forestay was then removed. I don't think it was meant to fly 2 headsails like a cutter. Later models were masthead rigged and used spreaders on the mast. Later models also incorporated a full hull liner while the earlier ones had carpet lining the hull.
