Per the link I posted--the USCG towed the boat in on July 22, so 3 weeks after Minnewaska's post. The photos show an apparently intact boat, and the USCG deemed it seaworthy enough to warrant bringing it in.

Re: Words to the wise!

It's always helpful to learn from the experiences of others. Could have done, and should have dones, are one of the aspects worth examining. In the real world, real time, things are a lot more difficult to assess. At any rate, the Kelaeron crew - in my opinion - come across as competent and experienced. What happened to them could have happened to any of us.

I was dismayed that they lost everything, and so close to home. And now ... the boat has been found. I am so happy for them and wish them the best of luck. May they find their Kelaeron back in the "cruising" mode and all their dreams come true.
