Re: The legacy of Philip Rhodes
I did a keel up restoration of a Rhodes 33" Swiftsure in 1990 and sailed her in Peconic Bay from 1992 -2001. She was painted dark green and was named Dinosaur. We regularly raced her in the Wed night beer can races around Robins Island and in the annual Whitebread race.
I sold her in 2001 and I always wondered what had become of her. I often have wondered how she held up. I barrier coated her bottom, remade all the mohaghany on deck out of teak, and tried to do everything right.
