I can't get that link to work without setting up an account. See if you can post another link.

Looks good. I notice that the bolts that were holding the deck to the hull were way too long. Probably somebody has taken this one apart before. And the trunk for the keel cable is much larger than mine. Mine is a 1.5 inch hose with hose clamps on it. Keep takin pictures.

Nice going Scott, you're making me look bad! I've got to grab a gear to keep up with you. What are you doing to strip your paint, sanding and scraping or are you using chemical? I got my standing rigging back from Blue Water Yachts this weekend, and got my deck and hull put back together and sealed with 3M 4200. Wow, that stuff is gooey!

I was going to have my wife patch it, but if anyone has one to sell used that functions, I will probably want/need them by the time I'm done making it pretty again.
Ajsemtb, you might try calling Bacon & Associates in Annapolos. They may have something in their used sails inventory that'd work or perhaps be cut-down. Always most helpful staff. And, they'll ship. Bacon Sails & Marine Supplies

Seeing and reading this thread has been fun. I learned most of what I know sailing with my dad/family on our 1968 24' Venture.


Here's September Song in front of our house on the ICW in Lake Worth, FL.


My dad was a traveling salesman in Florida and would trail her to various parts of the state and use it as his floating motel and occassionally would invite his customers for a sail (sure fire way to close the deal!).

Thanks for the smile today! Great pictures of your work(s)-in-progress and I'll be checking back for updates on your Ventures!

according to info from the sellers, the overall very original condition of the boat (no paint anywhere, ever), the condition of the mating surfaces, and the material i found in the joint, i'm pretty sure this is the first time it's been separated. for example, not one gouge/scrape in the rubrail channel around the flathead bolts... you'd expect at least a few spots where the screwdriver slipped out of a slot during dis/reassembly... i know that was the case for my disassembly (despite best efforts from the girlfriend ). there were also very long bolts in the larger aft cam cleats and some other through-decks too that looked very original.

i also noticed the different cockpit drain trunk on yours... gotta love it- mass-produced yes, uniform no... definitely some one-offs here and there. the twisted bow pulpit install is still the prime example coming off mine.

you can just imagine the heads putting these things together down in so-cal in the early seventies... must have been fun.
