I know this was a few years back now, but what an amazing job. Wow. How long did it take?

this forum makes it impossible to share anything, anyway try copying and pasting the link above in your browser and then maybe add the htttp:// ( have to put 3 T's in there to fool the post, because this forum will not let me post any "links" for some reason)... I guess it picks up on any thing that looks like a web address. anyway i bought the boat for 1700$ and put about 1k into it. Results were good.

Awesome! Looks sharp. I miss that boat. I don't use my 21 nearly as much as I used that 17. I think you have to be a member here for a certain amount of time or make so many posts before you can post links. Prevent spammers from joining and posting dirty stuff.

So what's its name now?

Re: Venture 17 restoration

its now called the "Banana Hammock" because I thought that was funny at the time. Gets a lot of weird looks in NC. Unfortunately, i barely get to sail it since I moved to California just after the boat was finished- But my buddy has been sailing it around and even taken it several miles offshore in NC.

Well at least you won't see another boat with the same name.

Re: Venture 17 restoration

Wow, joe. Fantastic job on that boat. Love that you're in MN, too (I live in Burnsville).

I'm thinking about removing the keel on my venture 17 to do some rebuilding. Any tips on how you went about it when you did the rebuild? Anything I should watch out for (aside from killing myself?)

How did you do the keel rebuild?
