CAPT. RICHIE, Captree, NY – 1971
Captain Richie Westerlind's "CAPT. RICHIE" from Captree, NY circa 1971. She was one of several Gillikin party boats owned by the Westerlind Family over the years. Gillikin Boat Works built her in 1961 at Harkers Island, NC and she originally sailed as the "CAPT. GEORGE". Later sold and renamed the "DULCINEA", she is currently operating as a launch for a yacht club at Boardman, OR. Partially disassembled for the move to Oregon, the boat was trucked across the country and reassembled on the west coast. Photo courtesy of Erika Westerlind.
