New Pics from Siskiwit’s New Owner

After 26 years of ownership it’s genuinely thrilling to see the progress in modifications and upgrades Don Brennan, member of the Buccaneer Yacht Club (1928) of Mobile, Al has completed on Siskiwit.

He lifted the pilot berths by 2″ and seat backs outboard by 4″ giving a wider berth when pulled out and thicker foam for a greater night’s sleep.

Hurricane Nate

I have no logs for Siskiwit’s first twenty years, but Hurricane Nate was her fifth encounter with a Hurricane since 2003. Her new owner took her up the Dog River which is a river in Mobile County, Alabama. The Dog River watershed drains more than 90 square miles and is about 8 miles long and is influenced by tides as it discharges into Mobile Bay. The Dog River is a brackish river and known to be a shallow river with the average depth at around 9–12 feet.  Perfect for bass, bream, mullet, redfish, croakers, speckled trout, flounder and Siskiwit, an Ojibway indian name for trout.
