    The reason I asked, is because I just bought one, it needs alot of work , the mast is gone and there is alot wood rot, I have torn the deck off of the back and the starboard side, it says at the web site that only 4 or 5 were built,

    Hey, Fishweed, I have a RW36 as well but still in the water. Do you have more pics of the underbody of yours? I'm trying to see the bilge shape in the middle of the boat. Or a pic from almost the front and one almost the back, all from down lower so the camera shows the curves of the hull. Your pic you posted is good but there is a car in the way of the rudder. How are you doing on your restoration? We have a mast and standing rigging, but will probably rerig to all-aluminum. Thanks, Ronald

    I would really appreciate if you could measure your mast from the deck to the top, I figured it was 31 feet, I will have to make a mast, the lowest point on the bilge is under the packing gland behind the engine, I would put a pump there with a sump and filter and one in the forward cabin, and one in the salon, I had a bad leak and it was at the rudder shaft, I had to pull the rudder and glass and 5200 the rudder bushing hole, and I replace the lag bolts and drilled through holes and made a plate for ss bolts and nuts, all of my stringers need repair, the wood inside is rotten
    here is a site with more pictures http://mysite.verizon.net/resoebzq/

    I am not at the boat at this time, but will be within the next few weeks and will be glad to measure the mast. Sounds like you have quite a job ahead of you, but from the pics on your site you are moving right along. Thanks, Ronald

    Hi, guys!
    Can any of you sent to me photos of your boat with the mast up, as well as main data? I will post it at my Motorsailers & Motorsailing pages. Thanks in advance.

    Cheers.

    Hi, Roughwater fans,
    What do people think about the RW36 MS. How well dose the sail rig work?
    What should one look out for on a RW36 ms?
    There is one on y.w. in LA that has the mast on it.
    They got lt listed as a 35' ms.but looks like a 36' to me. Maybe they can help.
    What do you think about the boat?

    THANKS FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE.

    I bought one and I am replacing the entire deck, tore out the salon windows and replaced the 3/4 ply wood and glassed it, look for water and rot damage under the deck supports and the bulkheads, these boats are good looking but have very bad spots on the deck, that lets the water set and not run off, I bought the boat with no mast, I will either build one or get and alum. one for it, from the hull shape and the weight of the boat, I am pretty sure it would be a dog as far as sailing, but if you ran the motor and used the wind , it would be ok

    The RW36 is an interesting yacht. Thanks to this posting, I am now aware of several more 36's. There is a yahoo mailing list for those who own or are otherwise interested in Roughwater Yachts. It can be reached from the following link:

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/roughwaterboats/

    You should be able to tell the difference between the 35/36 by the Hull ID number. It should read something like RWB36xxxx or RWB35xxxxx. The xx are the production number and production date. A few RW's do not follow this convention though.

    Anyone with interest in Roughwater Yachts, feel free to email me.
