Jim (and Arlyn) Anderson's Antigua II, Yankee Dolphin #189, Cook's Bay, Upper Lake Minnetonka, Mound, Minnesota (updated July 23, 2012)).  

September 12, 2009 We got the following email and photo from Arlyn Anderson. From these we already know a lot about her, her dad, and Antigua II. Stay tuned for more

Hi Ron

I am new to the Dolphin24.org site. Thank you for maintaining it. Those of us who have loved the Yankee Dolphin appreciate it very much. I thought you might be interested in this picture my father took of me sailing our Yankee Dolphin, Antiqua II, in 1977. I was a 16 year old girl at the time and was sailing on Cook's Bay on Upper Lake Minnetonka, in Mound, Minnesota. This is a picture of the original photograph. I clearly remember this being my first solo sail on Dad's new boat and being miffed when I spotted my father heading toward me in my grandpa's fishing boat. I was sure he was coming to tell me to "take in the jib" or, better yet, "let out the main," but when he got closer I noticed that he was pointing a camera at me. My annoyance melted away. Enjoy and thank you again for all you do!

PS I now sail a Victoria 18 on Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. I'm looking for a Dolphin to purchase.

                                                I think we'll keep this one...                                              


November 24, 2010. Arlyn sent in Antigua II's hull # - 189. This is a probably a pretty good guess as Arlyn's dad was the first owner and this was the number he put on her sail.

DFI's please note - Antigua II is still missing....


February 27, 2011. We found her! She is now John O'Toole's Sinn Fein in Chicago, Illinois


March 6, 2011. We thought Arlyn should know and in response Arlyn sent in the following email:

Hi Ron!

It's a sure thing. SInn Fein is Antigua II - hull 189. I just had a nice talk with John, Sinn Fein's owner, and sure enough he has the paperwork and the brochure that has the picture I sent you on the cover. Thank you for helping me find this boat that meant so much to me in my youth!



July 23, 2012. There was another Yankee Dolphin up in this area in the 1970's - and they knew each other! Click here to go to Duane Post's SISU, Yankee #184.
