Boat Reviews By Owners
1965 -- 19' 0" O'DAY SAIL BOAT
Model: Rhodes 19
Cockpit: Ample space in this cockpit for a few people to enjoy a day sail.
Cabin: The little cuddy is just enough to keep some gear semi-dry. The floorboards keep everything up out of any bilge water.
Construction: Fiberglass, solid - yeah it is getting olde, but no signs of structural breakdown - just some gelcoat cracking
Handling: Some people like to race this boat - we just like a nice day's sail. 5 knots, 25 knots, this boat is great fun - and honestly, its hard to get in trouble with her - ours has a shoal draft centerboard and just the right amount of sail with the ability to reef.
Engine Room: Just a kicker to get up and down the creek emptying into the bay.
General Comments: We bought the older Rhodes after sailing a pile of boats including a few catboats. This boat can be sailed drier than a Daysailer but has more spunk than a catboat. A good boat for a family of sailers with different skill levels.
