These folks deal with OEM items for old Ventures.
Give them a call.

I highly recommend you measure your own rig and know your potential sail size before taking sizes from others.
You just never know whats been done to that old boat over the years.

You also need to decide what type of Jib you want.
90%, 100%, 105%, 110%, etc.

You right i will measure my rigging. im looking for 100% jib replacement . I bought one from Amazon that claimed to be OEM replacement but received V21 jib instead. It fits like a storm jib on the v25. Thanks for the advise and the info.
