Can't tell if flush decks or even canvas color. US Coastguard is aware of boat and it's situation, would they connect the two if they are related? We are west coat so no local knowledge or ability.
Almost zero chance. Panama City is the Florida panhandle on the Gulf side. Gil's boat went north from where it dragged anchor.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

Well I live on the Outer Banks of NC, it is a large stretch of beach but pretty much a small town place if you grow up here. If Dagny comes ashore anywhere from Hatteras inlet to the Virginia state line I will hear about it. Like I said small town and shipwrecks are one of the things that get talked about when they happen. Local radio stations, local websites and local gossip. If I can find it in my pics I'll post a picture of one that came ashore last winter, small boats which are closed up really seem to just bounce through the surf with little apparent damage. The costly part is trying to get them either back in the water (not recommended) or towed off the beach (Flatbed trailer and a crane). Anyway I've got this portion of the east coast covered for you Gil that's about all I can offer right now. Good Luck

If dragging anchor was what actually happened it probably did go North. If someone took it for a joy ride, very well could be Gils boat. Get the picture on here and as much info as available.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

An addendum here for anyone who thought Gil was some sort of scam artist. . . . He just refunded the PayPal money I had sent him early on.

And I didn't even want it back! I was hoping to collect in beer and stories, a few years from now. Alas . . . for all that compounded interest.

I hope we can still have that beer someday in a beautiful anchorage, Gil.

This is testament to the good character of Gil and the good souls of CF. Those that contributed financially, emotionally and with their precious time spending hours, days and weeks in helping in all manner of ways. CF is richer for showing the humanity of the people on this forum.

For those of you that saw fit to kick and maline a sailor when he was down on his luck all I can say is the universe has a way of paying bad behavior back. I don't need to say shame on you because you and everyone here know who you are and your shame is well revealed.

Good luck and and early return to the oceans Gil.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

Thank You to OCEAN GIRL, GOING WALK ABOUT, and all who saw through all of those negative posters comments and kept the faith in the integrity of a fellow sailor who had had a serious knockdown in his life. It is very comforting to know that such good friends are out there for all of us.

Gil, still hope to see you out there, and lifting a few with you would be an honor and a pleasure.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

Thanks everyone. I will be issuing refunds one by one, which will take me a while probably, depending on work.

Hi Gil. No hurry. And if it helps you get back on the water sooner put mine towards that endeavour. I admire your character.

Regards,
Chaya

No hurry Gil. I think most of us who supported you aren't really waiting for you to refund as quickly as possible.
