We wanted to let everyone know that we had a possible sighting of our boat Sunday the 24th around 3:00 pm and it was an approximately 41’ Ketch, with pilothouse, cutter rig, Farvuno Radar on Mizzen. It tacked about 200’ from shore at St. Pete Beach then went southbound west of Eggmont Key. This came from someone out on the water that couldn’t get any closer. We really appreciate the eyes out there!! Thank you!

Ron, your boat is kinda distinctive, with the big aqua stripe and pilothouse. If it is around there...remember to call the USCG stations and any "harbomasters" in the area, let them know it is AWOL and ask for their assistance.

Good hunting!

Another good place to contact is the local marina/marine services owners group. They have one up here in Buzzards Bay, and probably have one down near your neck of the woods... If you tell them the description of the boat, they can keep an eye out for it, and might even be able to tell you if they came in and got the boat repainted.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
