Lightbulb heres a weird one: blue water rhodes 19

Hey there, I am currently in the process of restoring a Sailstar (bristol) corsair 24, and over the weekend my roommate came to the yard with me and fell in love with a rhodes 19. We were thinking about smaller boats that have crossed oceans. what kind of cabin would you guys build to take a rhodes transoceanic and maintain her classic lines? I was thinking a kind of doghouse style addition to the cut away. we're mostly joking... but kinda not really. Crazy thoughts anyone?

I would assume the fk version and not the center board?. Why would you want to? It is a 1300 lb boat. Scary!

Look at some of the Atlantic crossing rowboats there may be some good ideas there.

Zen is a matter of recognizing reality.

I have seen a couple of trans-ocean rowing boats up close. We were in Antigua when the winner of one the races came in. They are incredibly specialized boats - don't see much carry-over to sailing.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
