Siamese is on a distinguished road
The Venture's on the very bottom of quality. There has been much discussion on this site and elsewhere with regard to the merits of sailing a poorly built boat. There's no definite answer as to whether you should do it.

I've owned my share of older fiberglass boats. They all need and upkeep. I'd much rather spend my time working on a boat that was built properly instead of one that was built to be the cheapest possible.

I guess it comes down to my taking sailing very seriously...the manufacturer ought to be as serious about building. Venture wasn't.
