Document Library

As many of you know, older boats sometimes don't come with a full complement of documentation. Carelessness, loss, water damage, wild goats, etc. can leave a boat without that one critical piece of information that is sometimes necessary to maintain or repair equipment. In an attempt to make important information available to our community, we've decided to create an online resource library for Rhodes 22 owners.

Disclaimer: Be aware that General Boats, Rhodes22.Org, and the individuals who have made these documents available to you take no responsibility whatsoever for the contents of these documents nor the application of the information within them. They are provided here merely as a service to the Rhodes 22 community. The Rhodes 22 is a semi-custom boat, and has gone through many changes and improvements over the 30+ years General Boats has been building it. These documents, like the Rhodes 22 itself, have also evolved over time and may or may not be appropriate for use with your particular boat. Use them at your own risk. Remember - Your mileage may vary.
