I would either remove the inner stay or make it detachable. I have the same issue on my big boat with the Genny if the solent stay is in place.

Buy Brian's book

Search out Brian Gilbert's book "Sailing Small" He rebuilt an V22 and documented the process.

Pictures ...

I'm picking up a 1972 MacGregor Venture 21 on Saturday that is in good condition. I'd be happy to post any pictures you need, though there will obviously be a few changes in the years between the construction of our boats.

I'm rebuilding a 1970 Venture 22. Got a very good deal on it, lots of extras.
The mast step was bent the plywood under was very wet, glass cracked.
So I removed the glass 1 1/2 sq.' the wood is drying out. I'm going to fill the bolt holes and rebuild the glass cut new bolt holes. I'll remove some of the glass in the cabin under the mast and reglass. Many things need to be fixed. The good thing is that the keel moves up and down. The leading edge of the keel is badly cracked so glass work there. I'll should be able to sail her in a couple of weeks. So far three weekends of work and $ 1,800. Not too bad.

After the wood drys out, use CPES on it to kill any spores and prevent rot in the future.

i am about to embark on a simular mission

this is very helpful. i am about to undertake a very similar list of repairs and tasks. i will post my official agenda, progress, and pictures as soon as i begin. the only thing that concerns me is the spiting of the boat into tow halves it seems risky and at the same time it seems like it may be the best way to refinish the hull ? any additional comments on that aspect of the project?

Pulling the deck/hull join screws shouldn't be that difficult. You'll need help to get it apart and on stands or horse afterwards. I'd think that getting it back together will be a bit harder, as far as getting and keeping the holes lined up. I would drop and pull the swing keel first.

I picked up a Mac Venture 21 with a trailer last summer for $200... and have done a bunch of work you all may be interested in.. Check out my groups page on Yahoo... it shows the work I did on the swing keel, and how I lifted the boat to work the bottom....

Best wishes,
Chris
