Re: 1958 Rhodes Bounty II TELEIA

Don thanks for that link! That is a great deal! I'll take the wheel if anybody buys it and wants to trade me for my tiller ha ha ha

David I remember your boat's name for some reason. Either I read about your boat, or another with the same name. In either case I would love to get together, and to sail would be a bonus. Or a dockside visit even with a Bounty II aficionado. I am always well stocked with good beer, if not food.

What i really dread is contorting my body into the out of the way postures usually required for removing deck hardware. I've spent a lot of time doing boat yoga, and although the process is progress, the pain fades more slowly as I age. Plus nothing leaks (aside from the big ports aft) right now, and man I hate to mess with that.

Re: 1958 Rhodes Bounty II TELEIA

Greetings from Vashti, hull #19! We will be creating the refit thread soon, although she doesn't need much except a few upgrades, having been a beloved Mackinac racer for 60 years, and several extensive refits in that time.

Re: 1958 Rhodes Bounty II TELEIA

Teleia and I are still sailing in Annapolis. Ive continued to make progress, most recently installing a wood stove and coal bin, and changed the table location. Also the table now folds away.

I was working on the yacht WITCHCRAFT for a bit, and sailed up to Stony Creek for a week. Great sail there and back, and Teleia loved the full gale a bit more than I did.

David - I had a great time sailing with you! I'm sorry Ive been out of touch since but I dropped my phone overboard and with it your contact info.

Living aboard in the cold is interesting. It hasn't really settled in to the dead of winter yet, but I have had to maintain heat aboard round the clock for a while now. I'm burning nut coal. I start the fire with wood then switch to coal. I'm burning 24/7 and going through about 60-80lbs a week. I'm getting the coal in 40 lb bags for $6 per. So for about $50 per month I get more heat than I can handle.

Here is the stove, the coal bin and the table.

Re: 1958 Rhodes Bounty II TELEIA

Quick update - living aboard in the the winter is amazing. The additional work of hauling solid fuel aboard isn't too much, and the stove has worked out perfectly. Nut coal. Burns hot and forever. Learning to control it has been a long process, still in fact ongoing. Smugly enjoying a perfect burn at the moment, but I have spent a lot of time fussing with the stove either trying to cool it off or heat it up. One day I'll add Good Coal Burner to my already impressive CV.

I'm prepping for painting the deck which will be in the spring, still sailing back and forth to Baltimore here and there and working on wood boats. Wind seems to feel harder somehow when its cold.

Hi JD!
I have hull #10. Great to see the work and joy your getting out of Teleia. Mine has been in the family for 4 generations...my grandfather originally bought it in 1962 and now I sail it with my 10 year old son. I have enclosed some misc pics. It’s in Newport beach CA.

Re: 1958 Rhodes Bounty II TELEIA

Gorgeous boat J. Clark! I love the wheel! In fact I have recently installed a wheel on TELEIA. Building the box to house the worm gear now.

I know damn well I do not need to convert my boat from tiller to wheel. The tiller works fine, and is gorgeous. There is nothing wrong with it. I have a hundred other things that need to be fixed. But! I was able to acquire a $5000 edson worm steering gear for a day's work, and once I had the gear, I started looking at wheels. Wasn't long before ebay presented the PERFECT wheel for TELEIA. 31" Brown Bros. bronze wheel. It was missing the handle and hub cover. The price was right (though the shipping cost wasn't.)

Some notes about converting to wheel steering: the tiller was fantastic, and I designed the rudderpost flange fitting for the worm gear to bolt to the tiller sleeve base. I can remove the worm gear and replace the tiller quite easily, and having emergency tiller steering functionality was something I wanted.

Of course the tiller transmits the forces on the rudder to your fingers much more than the wheel, but the wheel also demands a bit less attention than the tiller. It also takes up less cockpit space, since the tiller swept the entire cockpit. I can now sit on the aft seat in the cockpit and drive, and on the leward side you get a great view of both sails. You can't easily steer with the tiller back there.

Also I finally installed a properly draining shower pan in the head, sealed up the leaks, and installed a grey water sump that discharges overboard. Next up are main companion hatch doors, getting the big compass repaired and swung, and painting the cockpit.

I'm headed to New England in 6 weeks. Better get busy!

Re: 1958 Rhodes Bounty II TELEIA

Hi folks just a quick update: I'm still living aboard Teleia. I came north to long island sound in the summer and have been on anchor until a week ago when I came into brewers in glance cove to repair my water pump">raw water pump. I'm currently provisioning for a trip out to Greenport. I'm looking for crew for the trip if anyone is interested. Its 120 NM and with the westerly predicted for Wednesday it should be a champagne run of 30 hours or so if I don't stop.

I continue to make progress on repairs/modifications. Finished the wheel and compass install, and companion doors well along.

Can't say enough about the Bounty II. Lucky mine came with excellent ground tackle. I rode out a 60 knot squall in Cape may no issues aside from being scared to death.

Thanks for keeping us updated!
Do you have the original windlass and cleats on the bow?
Keep those photos coming!

About the two mainsail tracks, maybe one is for the mainsail and the other is for a storm trisail.
