1974 Venture/Portager 22 *Pics added*

Postby BreezKnees » Thu Jul 13, 2017 9:44 am

Hello,

I picked up my first sailboat a short while back a badly neglected 1974 Portager 22. Took me a while to find any information on this boat using the hull id numbers and there is literally only a couple of posts I could find on the web referring to "Portager 22" but I came to find this boat was exactly what I was looking for. Essentially a straight copy of the MacGregor Venture 22-2. Looks as though it has sat for 10-15years under a pine tree in someones backyard. I picked her up for a very reasonable $70 :D

I'm trying to figure out this google drive deal but what a PIA... I'll figure out some way to link more than the 3 Photos I was able to post here

As you can see I'm missing alot, Mast, Boom, Genoa Tracks, Stanchions, Standing rigging, Rub Rail..... ALOT but ehhh I have a hull 8) I know a few places/people around the area I should be able to pick up these items for a reasonable price. Currently located in the Metro Detroit/Erie/Monroe Area.

I haven't posted on any forums, usually performance car forums, in awhile but it's great to find such a well rooted forum/knowledge-base for these boats.

Much more to come, Cheers!
Charles

Congratulations on your hull.

You guys are lucky that there is a few recycled boat parts places around, over here there is only a couple and they charge best part of new prices for second hand bits, no bargains to be had.

Posting some pictures after I gave her a bath looks pretty darn good IMO...
