    Greetings my fellow skippers… I hope you and your families are in good health!

    Predicated all goes per plan, I should be the second owner of a '13 370 Venture next week – photos forthcoming (I hope). I look forward to participating to the forum and connecting with new H2O enthusiasts. Fun facts about me:

    -Originally from the Midwest (IL) – reallocated to Houston in '07
    -Prior endless buckets of cash: '89 Carver 32 Montego | '05 Baja 245 | '07 Regal 4060
    -Current endless buckets of cash: Wife | "cheerleading" daughter (7) | son (5)
    -Boating location: Lake Conroe

    Tuhows, welcome to CSR. You might want to go back and check your first posting. I wasn't aware SR made a Venture in a 13' size. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, welcome. We pretty much have a standing rule on here:
    Without photos it didn't happen.

    That's because we all like to see photos of other CSR members' boats, where they use them and the owners on board.

    BTW, my son just moved down to Conroe from WA. Loves it except for the humidity.

    Welcome aboard! Looking forward to the pictures. The Venture was a cool boat and led Sea Ray into getting outboards on cruisers.

    Well... boat made it safely to its new home today; however, it needs a new battery charger ProNautic 1240P. Has power to charger but not turning on. Headed to West Marine in the morning...

    Pictures forthcoming, unable to upload from phone.

    Thank you. Much obliged. I kept my Regal at South Shore Harbour a few years back. My wife and I love the area.

    Good looking boat. I hope Conroe is cleaner than our N TX lake - I had a black hulled boat and it was a SOB to keep clean. Looked great, but had to clean it every time it came outta the slip - though I do see you're trailering? Oh - and shade is king.....

    Thank you - it’s great to be back on the water.

    @Fly’n Family: same water conditions here. I had a previous black hulled boat... it’s a SOB to keep clean for sure. No trailering, I posted a picture of it headed to Conroe.
