Recycled Rhodes22

Sealover,

I don't keep my boat on a trailer but you can contact the manufacturer to see if one will fit in your garage. The length might be more of an issue than the height. The outboard and trailer tongue will add a few feet to the boat.

You'll pay about $5,000 more for a recycled boat. Sounds like a lot of money but you can work with the manufacturer if you don't want the full recycling. Painting the topsides is about $2,500 of it and although it makes the boat look new you can certainly live without it. On the other hand the cheapest quote I found in the Annapolis area (Kent Island) was $3,300. Based on the number of complaints (none) I'd say that most recycled Rhodes owners are happy with the program.

One of the best parts of the program is that you can add new boat options such as a motor lift, solar panels, instruments, etc. You can even add recycled options but used or new it will cost you.

My boat was recycled in 2004 and you're more than welcome to take a look at her.

Good luck!

Lee
