thanks for the quick reply. i have been looking into the association page and most of the information i have found about the boat has come from there. yes she will require a lot of work. the teak decks were taken off but the spruce masts would need some work. a large portion of the interior is shot and would need to be replaced. one of the owners attempted to repair the interior and i suppose felt the ice box would be better suited as storage and covered it up. that was one of my favorite parts about the boat! but once again thanks. i have heard nothing but good things about the boats so far, except for the work they involve to get them looking back to somewhat new. i'm currently trying to finish a complete restoration on a rhodes 19 so i can make room for a bigger project...one i could live on. i'm just trying to plan everything and make sure this is the boat for me. thanks! joel
also any idea how they perform the windward?
