CAPT. ROD, Captree, NY – 1965
The original "CAPT. ROD" from Captree, NY and skippered by Captain Rod Westerlind circa 1965. Built by Gillikin Boat Works, Harkers Island, NC in 1961, this 60-footer specialized in Bay Flounder fishing during her Long Island fishing career. In 1968, she was replaced with a larger Gillikin vessel and sold. Her new owner relocated her to Key Largo, FL and after remodeling, she sailed as the "CAPTAIN'S LADY". Photo courtesy of Ed Keefe Jr.
