CAPT. ROD, Captree, New York – 1970
Like all of the Gillikin-built vessels in the Captree Party Boat Fleet, The "CAPT. ROD" displays her beautiful furniture-like woodwork in this 1970 photo. Built in 1968 by Harkers Island Boat Works, the "CAPT ROD" was the second boat the Gillikins built for Captain Rod Westerlind. The "CAPT. ROD" continues to sail from Captree, New York under the command of Captain George Bartenback and is one of the last Gillikin vessels to keep her fine varnished mahogany.
