'Chessie,' Where Are You ?

I am looking for the current location of a 48' Bruce Roberts Ketch who was named Chessie in 2007. Fiberglass, pilot house, built by Sea West Vancouver BC, Canada 1977 - 1984. I cannot find her in the US Coast Guard registry, so I assume she has had her name changed or met her demise. The owners had many blogs of their adventures and had her up for sale in 2007 while docked near Rome, Italy. She is my dream boat. Any assistance in finding her would be greatly appreciated.

An accident. At least it wasn't italicized as well.

Thanks for the heads up and well wishes.

Thanx TaoJones.

Re: 'Chessie,' Where Are You ?

Hi Simon. Thank you for the reply.

Several years ago I typed in all the attributes of my dream boat, then hit search. Chessie popped up. The most current information I had on her was that she was in Italy, for sale. But I never got a response from the contact email listed. Now I know why.

Where is her/your home base now? Is she as wonderful as I thought she might be? When you are through with her, will you please let me know?

L.

Hello Simon, we are back in a position to resume our hunt for our ketch. Do you still have Chessie? If not, do you know where she may be?

Thanks for any information you may have.

Laura
