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!

Seeking Used Sails

1969 Rhodes 19 centerboard needs new sails. My family and I have been limping along on some tired old rags for too long. We’re hoping to get a decent set of sails for the coming season. Keep in mind that we’re not racers; decent to us might be your discards. Mostly looking for a main and a jib but would love to land a spinnaker.

Mast Needed

A large branch fell on my boat during hurricane Ian and broke the mast.  It was built in 2000 and is a center board model.  I do not know yet, but am guessing the insurance Co. is not going to cover it.  Any leads on a good used one greatly appreciated.



Used Sails Wanted

Looking for used spinnaker and mainsail for my early 70’s Rhodes 19. Boat is used for cruising not racing so not too concerned about age/use so long as in reasonably good shape. Especially in the case of the spinnaker as I don’t currently have one.

Please contact me by email or text if you’ve got one or both and looking to offload.
