Rhodes Offshore 40
Whether under full sail or power, Lake Superior or the Atlantic, she moves through the water with power and grace and, in any harbor, is under constant observation and comment. The thought Phil Rhodes put into his design is demonstrated by Siskiwit having only 4 owners in since the issuance of her Builder’s Certificate in 1969.
About the Captain:
Henry A Young enjoyed ownership of Siskiwit from 8/ 1989 – 10/2016. Together they sailed all of the Great Lakes, Hudson River, and from Castine, Maine, to Ft. Lauderdale and, once in the Bahamas, he followed the log of Christopher Columbus 500 years later. His Eastern seaboard cruising included a Southbound and Northbound single hand via the ICW from Norfolk, VA to Loggerhead Marina, Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
Siskiwit’s new owner is Captain Donovan P Brennan of Mobile Bay, AL. Don and his wife Susan plan to cast off for Mexico and the Bay Islands in the winter of 2022.
Henry now operates Erehwon Retreat, two 1923 vacation rental properties in Tampa, FL. and five consecutive year (2019-2022) winner of the Tampa Award for Vacation Rentals.
