And for what it's worth moderators can delete my dangerous and practically illegal post. I was just trying to contribute something to a community that has helped me out a lot.

Again when the freighter runs me down because he is drawn like a moth to the flame to my less than legally green light, know I died happy.

I'm sure to many everything I do on my boat is ill advised. I taught myself how to sail by launching the boat and figuring out how it all works. If I kept to what some advise I would never leave my...

Using the backstay the mast is obviously going forward. The problem then becomes the side stays. I think most are a bit aft of the mast, so you will have to loosen or disconnect them. Not impossible,...

I'm not familiar with your boat, but may be able to offer some insight. On my V222 I am able to lift the mast by hand. Stepping up onto the cabin top from the cockpit is tough, but I find it doable....

Re: Light-light air!!! Exciting stuff?

I don't have a lot to add, as I am still learning, but I will say that a light air day this summer was an excellent learning experience. Motoring wasn't an option, as I didn't have much gas, and I...

Re: Best place to buy a secondhand sailboat

One major variable is what size boat are you looking at. Living in the middle of Michigan, I am only interested in a trailer sailor. My horizon then for a boat was anywhere I would be willing...

Re: Production buckets and the limits

I'm relatively new to sailing, but I was meaning to ask, if anyone could give me some advice. I was wondering about taking my Macgreggor Venture 222 around the world. There are six in our family,...

Re: Production buckets and the limits

Don't be fooled by high dollar stainless buckets! No kidding, there I was, milking my cow this morning. My 13 quart stainless bucket half full of milk. I pick up the bucket to leave the cow, and...

re: Onboard: Electric stove or other?

Yes, a camping stove will work fine on a small boat. Just don't store propane in the cabin, as it is an explosion hazard. On my 22 footer I do most of my cooking in the cockpit, which is where I keep...

We need a bigger boat

My family of 6 (4 kids, wife, and self) just got back from an 11 day cruise of Lake Huron's North Channel aboard our 22' Venture 222. We spent 3 nights ashore on Manitoulin Island with family, but...

Re: Help me with my "why wait until retirement" plan

I live a short drive from Lake Huron, and would be all about a boat share. I would buy a boat and give up June and July if someone would pay for a slip and storage. Obviously there is risk in...

I don't think it is a McGregor. It does not look anything like my V222.

Re: The run aground poll

The first time I ever put my boat in the water, I ran aground almost before leaving the dock. I got it off the trailer, parked the truck, got in the boat, and put the outboard in reverse. The...

Since we don't have prison work houses for him to repay the cost of this mess, I hope we at least make sure he gets to Cuba.

Good luck with your dream!

If building a boat means a lot to you then by all means go for it. If the dream is more sailing related I would strongly recommend skipping that step. Small boats are very affordable. I own a 22'...

Rudder rebuild

I remade a similar rudder last year. I cut strips of Redwood then glued them together to form a blank. I used a hand planer to shape it into a foil, then wrapped it in glass. I am very satisfied...

The 3M spray adhesive is definately waterproof. It is used to glue jet-ski mats to the fiberglass trays, and I have never seen a failure. I don't think sanding would do much good due to the way it...

Re: If you sail Lake Huron, say Hi!

I have just started sailing this year. I bought a Venture 222 this summer. I have been out twice on Huron from Lexington. I love it so far. Looking forward to getting out more next year.
