Rhodes 22 Ownwers

Are there any other R22 owners using this forum? I am new to sailnet and trying to figure out how to navigate the various fourms, pages etc...

Hi CP

Guy I sold it to changed the name...bad liuck if you don't perfornm "The Ceremony" and he sank it, at least partially.
Only seen a half dozen or so.

Rhodes owners on this list

I have an 88 model Rhodes 22 that I have owned for 16 years. I would be glad to offer any advice and answer any questions you may have about this fine boat.

I have one that I still sail here on the Maine coast. I have modified it some. I like it very much.

It is fast and capable. Its shallow draft gives it an advantage here in the strong currents some of our "protected" waters enjoy.

I have beefed it up in several ways for safety. i am a former boat builder so the doing of those "upgrades" was not expensive.

I have sailed it through "The Old Sow" off Eastport many times.

Mine is an older one.

How is your experience with yours coming?

It is one of several boats we enjoy here in Maine. Being retired allows me time to play.

Wasswagler,

Go to rhodes22.com and rhodes22.org and you'll find hours of entertaining reading and pictures and a listserve forum.

Ranked number one by this website's owners' survey which is impressive, but you'll want to read the entire survey before going out and buying a Rhodes. As a hobby I continually look at new and used boats. I own a Rhodes22 and haven't been able to find a boat that better fits my needs.

Good luck!

Lee

I just bought a Rhodes 22, I am encouraged by all the good things said about it. I have been looking for an owners manual on line and cant seem to find one. Would like to know if anyone knows where I could find one. This is my first big sail boat so I know I have a lot to learn

Rhodes22 Owners Manual

Bridgeguy,

I pulled this from the documents section of the owners' list at rhodes22.org:

http://www.rhodes22.org/doclib/Rhode...ners-Raven.pdf

There might be a newer one out there if you search the archives to the discussion list.

Good luck!

I've got a question for the Rhodes 22 crew - My garage door opening is about 90" high. Can I back the boat and trailer into my garage? Also, what is the length of the whole works on the trailer? I really liked the thought that went into the Rhodes 22. I first saw it at the Annapolis boat show and it seems like the best match for my wants/needs. If it fits in the garage! In pictures it looks like the mast rides very high on the trailer. I'm hoping it can be sat on the coachroof or off to the side before I back it in?

Anyone go the "recycled rhodes" route? May I ask what you paid and how you liked the experience?

Thanks!

Keep the expenses low and the good times high.
