Was the "Daysailor" a Rhodes design?

I will answer my last two posts.

No. The Daysailer is not the same boat as the Rhodes and/or Mariner.

The Oday Daysailer was a 16''9" Uffa Fox design. The Oday Rhodes 19 and Mariner share the same hull and both were a Phillip Rhodes design.

I would highly recommend a Fying Scott. Easily trailer by a small SUV, easily rigged, fast, great association around the us, great support from the builder, most will have spinnakers, can be raced if desired. Also fits six adults, extremely comfortable and very stable. Easily single handed

Try fssa.com has further information. I have a Morgan 384 and a flying Scott...when I really what to feel the fun of sailing the Flying Scott fits the bill.

Good Luck,

John

I would echo Jeff H. ''s suggestion for a DaySailer I or a DaySailer II ... I certainly love mine and had the same goals as yours when I bought it.

Here''s a link you might enjoy:

Great sailing characteristics with some zip. I really miss that boat.

check out the Tanzer 14 or 16 for easy trailering, rigging and great sailing/ another great boat is the Mercury 15, centre board by Cape Cod Ship located in Wareham, Ma.
good luck

Plenty of good suggestions here, one more is that something like a Vanguard 420 (14 ft.) might fit the bill. They can be found used from sailing schools and clubs, and are fun to sail with a crew of 2. Pretty light for trailering and handling. There's no cabin, but you did say daysailer.

Find out what's sailed in your area. Not only does this provide a supply of used boats but also a ready market when you're ready to move on. I've seen too many people buy some orphan and find when their ready to move on that there is no market for them.

Since you live in the midwest and the Flying Scot is sailed widely in the midwest, check out the Flying Scot Association website to determine where there are fleets near you. Even if you have no intention to race the locals will be able to provide valuble information regarding the boat and the used boat market.

Avoid heavy boats. The diference between a 500# and a 900# is significant when you're trying to get it on the trailor.

To a certain extent, your first boat might be dictated by what is available in your area. I started sailing in an area where sailing wasn't very popular, so the choice of sailboats was very limited.

In addition to those already mentioned, another good, basic sloop is a 16 foot Ray Greene "Rebel." The Rebel is often reputed to be the first fiberglass sailboat, built in 1948. It's lively enough to be fun but forgiving enough so you'll only take a swim if you really mess up.
