Rhodes-19-Boston-Skyline
The Rhodes 19 is a 19 foot (6 m) long sailboat, designed by Philip Rhodes and originally manufactured by O'Day. Currently, the Rhodes 19 is built by Stuart Marine Corp. To date, approximately 3500 of the boats have been built.  Available with either a fixed keel or with a retractable centerboard, it is used primarily as a day sailer or for one-design racing.  All of the Courageous Rhodes 19s are fixed keel. The Rhodes 19 is still actively raced throughout the United States, with active fleets in many Massachusetts locations.
