R 22

Rhodes 22


Cost of Ownership

A rule of thumb is that you will spend about 10% of the new price of the boat yearly, dockage, maintance, replacement, insurance, supplies etc.... Some years more, some less.

I am in the process of buying a recycled Rhodes22. I am also new to sailing and would like to know what my initial equipment should include. I'll be sailing on lake Michigan out of Chicago. I plan on staying with day sails until I gain experience/confidence, and then I would like to try some extended week long trips.

I know I need fenders that can handle both floating and attached docks, life jackets, and fire extinguishers (What kind? How many?). What other equipment should I consider?

I am very new to sailing so any info will be appreciated.
