The Venture Crewman 17 was a Maori crew member aboard the SS Venture who joined the rest of the crew on the expedition to Skull Island.


Experience on Skull Island

This man was hired by Carl Denham to an expedition to Singapore (never knowing that the ship was actually going to Skull Island). This sailor ran into Jack Driscoll when he was trying to get of the boat. He helps break up the fight with the natives and tends with the unconscious Jack. He was then among the rest of the crew who emptied most of the objects from the ship in order to it from sinking after it hit the wall before Ann Darrow's kidnapping.


When the crew was escaping from King Kong's wrath the man tried to shoot him with his Mauser Gewehr 1898, but was unfortunately grabbed and got bitten in the head and decapitated by Kong killing him instantly. His head decapitated and eaten by Kong and Kong after killing the man throws his dead headless corpse against the wall of the cave.  

Kong throws the man's lifeless headless corpse against the wall of the cave like he was nothing and it bounces into the water and is left floating as Kong continues his rampage
