Hi Sealover, welcome to Joe's thread that has become the place to post for the old Ventures. I like the name of your boat - you're right, good names are often serendipitous. We'll be interested to see your boat - pretty or not. I got my V-21 in October, too cold to sail so I spent the winter and did a full restoration. I built my trailer and built an 8 foot extension to go with it. Maybe you can come up with a system so you can sail local without going so far. Any chance they'd improve the ramp?
