Re: heres a weird one: blue water rhodes 19
I have seen a couple of trans-ocean rowing boats up close. We were in Antigua when the winner of one the races came in. They are incredibly specialized boats - don't see much carry-over to sailing.
Back in the water in Grenada - with new main and #2 and cockpit canvas (Santa came early). Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
