Rhodes 19 Wanted – San Diego Area

San Diego sailor would like to purchase a Rhodes 19 within 1000 miles of San Diego (preferably closer).

I’m looking for an older boat, an inexpensive fixer.  I would prefer a CB model with a trailer, but willing to look at a keel model too.

No intention of racing, just want something safe to take my grandkids sailing.  Experienced woodworker and fiberglass fabricator.

Thanks Steve!
