The 1940 Rhodes project

by jobi

Hello this is a first for me…

I already own a vintage fiberglass sailboat.

However, there’s something about wood that attracts me a lot…

This 40ft Rhodes design has found me when least expecting it…

I hope she will make a good partner in my upcoming voyages…

The reason I share on this site is that I am hopping some of you guys with more experience than me, will offer and share your expertise as I progress with this project…

Above are some photos as she is now.

If you would be interested in talking with him let me know and I can give you his phone number. My email is

Return to Your Wooden Boat Projects...

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
