Auxiliary Power/Tanks (orig. equip.)
Rhodes Design #658. Based on the earlier ALTAIR/RHODES 29, the BOUNTY II was one of the first production auxiliary sailboats of this size built in fiberglass. The design was commissioned by the builder specifically for the newly touted fiberglass construction methods. (William Garden, was retained to assist in the adaptation. ) The first boats were delivered with a fractional rig with the mast built of fiberglass. (As shown in drawing). Later boats had a masthead aluminum spar. A few of this design (12?) were finished by Palmer Johnson Yachts. The molds were later acquired by Pearson Yachts and modified to produce the RHODES 41.
