Turn heads at the dock with this classic sailboat package – I did!

I am regretfully selling my classic and refurbished 1960 Rhodes Bantam 14’sailboat, 1973 ‘Lil Dude trailer in good condition and refurbished vintage 1957 3 hp “Lightwin” Evinrude engine. Also included is a self-raising mast system I engineered. Purchase this package and you can sail the same day!

The trailer is in good working order with over $600.00 spent on bearing assembly work in 2018 (I have the receipt). It has new fenders and all the lights are all in working condition (happy to demonstrate). I painted the trailer a few years ago and have the old paint can so you can match the spec for touch up.

The 1957 Evinrude engine will start within a few pulls and runs well on the low speed (happy to demonstrate). It is a direct drive and has good water exhaust pressure. I have spent over $200.00 in parts for this vintage engine, work done on the Evinrude includes:
 New points
 New coils
 New condensers
 New spark plugs (2 cylinders)
 New spark plug wires
 Fresh gear case oil
 Cleaned carburetor
 Cleaned gas tank

The boat… The boat has been garage kept since I bought it in 2014. The hull number of this classic Rhodes Bantam 14’ is 1614 with this number matching the number on the main sail. The main sail and jib are in fair to good condition for their age, I even have the original sail bag. The sheets and halyards are in good condition with a new main halyard and newer batons. The jib has a down-haul that can be worked from the self-bailing cockpit, and the sail can be raised from the cockpit – with this upgrade I installed. The mast and boom are in excellent condition as well as the standing rigging, blocks pulleys, etc.

The transom has been reinforced so you can mount the engine next to the rudder. You can also mount the engine in the traditional location if not under sail (this area has been reinforced as well). The rudder is in excellent condition with the tiller and hiking stick also in excellent condition. The tiller and hiking stick have inset magnets to hold them together – no Velcro!

The top sides and bottom have been painted several times to get ready for the sailing season. The sides have also been waxed annually. The bottom needs touched up due to coming off and on the trailer, the cockpit was freshly painted a few months ago. I have some left over top side and bottom paint so you can match the spec for touch up.

Also included is an adjustable bumper system (with newer bumpers) to use when docked. The boat has a swing keel that can be raised and lowered also from the large cockpit that can fit 3-4 adults comfortably. The boat comes with hiking straps that I removed, but have them and all the hardware needed.

I have clean titles to both the boat and trailer. I am selling because I bought another boat (never sell your old boat until you have another one!) Serious inquiries only.
