My dad was a traveling salesman in Florida and would trail her to various parts of the state and use it as his floating motel and occassionally would invite his customers for a sail (sure fire way to close the deal!).

Thanks for the smile today! Great pictures of your work(s)-in-progress and I'll be checking back for updates on your Ventures!

thanks for the site, I checked on a main and a jib, and they have a couple that might work for my boat/budget. My question to everyone is what difference does the fabric weight make? There were 4 oz 5 oz and 6 oz dacron fabrics. I'm not going to be racing, I just want to take the family out and enjoy some wind. Also, the dimensions weren't exact, how much difference does an inch or so make on the measurements? Will I get chastised for putting sails on my boat that aren't Venture?
