Ventura Inflatable Boat?
I picked up this inflatable last week for $500 and am looking for any information available. There is no coast guard plate or HIN number on the boat. The only distinguishing mark is the Ventura label attached to the front of it. Several days of internet searching have failed to yield any clue as to who or what Ventura boats was or where it was made. I'm not even sure if the boat is hypalon or PVC, although I intend to do the solvent test soon. Any information available would be appreciated. The boat has wooden floors, a two piece wooden keel, and a plywood transom for a short shaft motor. It's roughly 13 feet 7 inches long (approximately 4.2 meters) and 5' 6" wide. It has three chambers, one for each side tube and one for the nose tube. The inside dimensions are approximately 34" x 88". Interestingly, it came with an Achilles floor bag that fits the floor boards perfectly. I do not think the boat is an Achilles, but if it was I wouldn't complain. The boat is in generally good shape and the previous previous owner had the valves replaced in the last 12 months.
Here's a couple of pictures.
