Baby LRC Venture 2019 update, due to shoulder surgery this spring I have been forced to cancel all my summer vacation plans, so no inter-coastal trip on Venture (by the way I named my Carver "VENTURE"), I borrowed the name from my favorite yacht found on you tube, owned and built by the owners company, Tony Fleming, I strongly recommend every boater that has any cruising in their blood to find and watch the Fleming travels on a 65 Fleming named Venture. I was actually involved with a friend that had me searching for the best cruising/exploring yacht to be used upon his retirement, my pick was the Fleming 65 or75 , my friend insisted on the 75. I would captain the yacht and he and his family would meet at destinations we wanted to visit, then my family would come to the boat for a visit, we were actually close to a decision to order or buy if available a NEW Fleming 75, I contacted Burr yacht sales the east coast dealer for some information and made plans to visit the Miami boat show for a look see and comparisons to other similar yachts before we pulled the trigger on the order. We had lots of plans in place, but as my father would say " if you want to make god laugh, tell him your plans", plans changed no yacht!

Enter Carver named VENTURE!

If life cooperates next year I will head down the inter-coastal to Norfolk Va. making stops along the way for sight seeing and maybe even a stop at BURR YACHT sale to look at the Fleming line up, who knows maybe a well used 55 Fleming is in my future!
