Re: Helpful Restoration Book for Venture and Other Mac Owner

I can wait 3 hours for the download. I have 4 more weeks in a wheelchair for my broken ankle.

Lots of good manuals for V24's V224's available there.

Can't say I'm real crazy about the format - I prefer forum's.

If you know how to set it up, the mods will be happy! I still own the site but don't have the expertise for that.

Re: V224 Old Boat new owner

I started a Yahoo group for the V24 a few years ago just because info was so scarce. 199 members and lots of info.

Craigslist ad that broke me up

http://stlouis.craigslist.org/zip/4154339165.html

It is a stripped V25 carcass with 3 4' holes in the hull! The only thing that is good is the pop top!

I broke out laughing when I saw the add.

Re: Anyone know how many Venture 2-24s were produced?

Tried finding the serial number, but had no luck. I looked on the inside of the transom everywhere on the starboard and port side and didn't see anything. I also looked for it on the outside of the boat and didn't see it there either, but the PO smothered my boat with house paint so it might just b...

Re: Anyone know how many Venture 2-24s were produced?

My V 24 is # 636. Come on over to the site on Yahoo and post up your knowledge of the 24s. It would be great to get more info on the site for the owners! 8)

Re: A couple ads mixed up in the Venture section

If you check ad 2119, the link in the ad takes you to pics of a V 25. The V25 link takes you to pics of a V23?

A couple ads mixed up in the Venture section

One ad says V23 and is a 25? The other says V25 and is a V23? :?:

Re: Venture 25 keel replacement

Update to old thread. The keel is out and looks very good. Jennifer has dibs till end of February then it's up for sale to anyone. It can be pallet mounted for shipping.

I just rediscovered this site after an HD crash.

Re: Looking to purchasa a Venture 2-24, have questions!

I'm on the Yahoo V24 site. This boat is odd. It has a factory well for the outboard. AND the keel winch is inside the cabin. The windows look too tall for the 24s. It also has the Mac logo on it. My question is? does this sound more like a Mac 25 or a 22? In what year did the Venture become the Mac?

Re: Venture 25 keel replacement

She is in southern wisconsin. I told her about one in St. Louis but don't know what she is doing. If anyone needs a V25 pop top, that is also available. Not my boat. It was abandoned and will be smashed in a few months. I should add that those are about the only usable parts. The hull was holed (rea...

Re: Jbug AKA MAC 25 Sea Trial

A person that can laugh at their own mistakes is a happy person. Thanks for sharing the humor. My first time launching a power boat was equally interesting. It was a loaner from my boss. He showed me everything except the hole that the drain plug should go into. After tying it to the dock, it seemed...

Re: free Mac 25

For all the dumster divers out there, go to West Quincy Mo. There is a river barge that was turned into a restaurant after the flood of 93. As far as I know, the price should be cheap unless you want to move it.

Re: Trailer Camber and shims

FWD Chryslers have the shims for the rear solid axle. If you can make a pattern and take it to a parts store they might be able to check for you.
