Lido 14 vs. Rhodes Bantam

Hello all. I'm a first time boat buyer, looking at dinghies/daysailers. I've got it narrowed down to a handful of boats, a Holder 14, a Lido 14, and a beautifully restored wooden Rhodes Bantam with fiberglass over wood below the waterline. Does anyone have any experience with the Rhodes? I know the the Holder and Lido would be relatively low maintenance and fun, but the Rhodes has them both beat in the character department. I just don't know anything about how it sails, how well it could be singlehanded by a beginner, etc. I'm in southern Missouri and it would be inland lake sailing in generally tame weather. Any thoughts?

Thanks, Rob

I would opt for the Holder, as being the best all around.
