Owners' reviews of Rhodes 22s and Ericson 34-2s

We've had a modification of our review boat schedule and are looking for input from current and former owners of the Rhodes 22 and Ericson 34-2 -- quickly!

Do you own a Rhodes 22 or Ericson 34-2 (built 1988-1996)? Have you had one in the past? Please get in touch with Dan Spurr at: by January 30.

Do you know someone who owns or has owned one? If yes, please forward this message to that sailor.

Specifically, Dan wants to know about:

  • sailing characteristics (good and bad)
  • level of quality in the build
  • what you like most about the boat
  • what you like least about the boat
  • specific problems you and others have had with this boat, like a leaky hull/deck joint
  • advice you would give to someone considering buying this boat

If this isn't a boat you've sailed in the past, please stay tuned for future messages. We're bound to come upon one that is or has been in your collection over the years. Right now, if you have had experience with a Rhodes 22 or Ericson 34-2, we're anxious to hear from you. Thanks for sharing your experience with "the rest of us"!
