I'll incorporate this into the article later. Just picked up an '82 Venture 21, so I'll grab some pics of that soon as well--gotta figure out how to rig it first :).

According to “Practical Sailor”, “The age of the inexpensive trailer sailor began with the Venture 21 in 1965.” The success of the Venture caught many other builders off guard, but they eventually responded. There was the inevitable wave of imitators, including the Catalina 22, the Santana 21 and the Cal 21, and our hero, the San Juan 21, all of which designs were finalized in 1969."
