That would be awesome! You might have to teach me a little more than just the boat though haha, never sailed a day in my life. Buying the boat on Monday though, so soon enough!

I did the same with my first boat, a Venture 2-22. Had someone look over it and haven't looked back. It was a great first boat.

Best of luck.

Re: Beginner in a Macgregor-Venture 25 on Lake MI

I would definitely suggest have some experience with you then when you go out for the first couple trips. And especially someone who knows the Lake. I would be glad to help you out. I might have a buddy come along who is more experienced than me in sailing in general if that is OK. Let me know when you get the boat. There is a lot to do before you actually hit the water. Where are you located?

I can vouch for gedaggett, while not personally, but he has been on this and other forums and does excellent mechanical work. He took a free wreck of a boat and made it much nicer so he knows the boats. He is a good source of advice for sailing on a budget on Lake Michigan. And I am sure if he was an ax murder or anything we would have heard about it!

I was going to recommend pinging inspector gedaggett, but he beat me to it.
