    I purchased this boat as a project, but I'm having trouble with the hull design since the previous owner seems to have been mistaken. She stated that this was a Philip Rhodes, possibly built in the 1930's. If anyone has any clues, please let me know. Thanks in advance!

    No idea, but for god's sake shift it forward on the trailer and put some tongue weight on the tow vehicle.

    I have no idea either but it is indeed a sexy looking hull. The cabin structure looks oversize to me and does not marry well, visually, with the sleek lines of the hull. The cabin structure could be a modification done by a previous owner....or maybe her designed just did it that way.

    If you mean to restore that beauty you have your work cut out for you. All that work might be worth the effort, sweat, grounds for divorce, and money....there is always the money.

    Best of luck to you. Get started with the restoration and do keep us informed.
