Caretaker of Boy Scout Venture 17

I'm cutting my teeth on our Boy Scout troop's sailboat. It's rough and moldy but the family likes to get out anyway and I like to cruise with friends in the evening on the local TX lake. The scouts aren't into it much so it's on me to store it and have all the fun.

I rewired it last year. It's truly functional now. I was pointed here by a post claiming that this was the site for everything Venture 17.

Cheers.

Re: Caretaker of Boy Scout Venture 17

There's a section called "Builder's Row" where you'll find a MacGregor pile with stuff about these boats. But... the most active thread for the 17 was started 4 years ago and keeps evolving. Here's a link:

Fun boats. Perfect size as far as I'm concerned -- it fits in a 1 car garage, can be towed behind a 6 cylinder car, and if you get stuck on a sand bar -- just get out and push it off.

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.

You're right - it is very practical. I pull mine with my four cylinder Toyota Previa minivan.

I've heard of scouts building PD Racers. I wonder how they would feel about a little competition.
