SEEKING ABRACADABRA

Hi everyone, we are a little concerned as we have lost email contact with Abracadabra, a Swan 47 American flag. Has anyone seen Phillip, Anna and the kids, (Jabiz and Annaliza 9 &11 years). Hope that some one has been in touch with them and can just let me know where they are and that they are ok

Many, many thanks

Maggie

Re: SEEKING ABRACADABRA

Maggie, try the destination section of the forum, and post where last known port of call. Are they officially over due? Or just haven't heard from them in a while?

Re: SEEKING ABRACADABRA

Hi there

Not meaning to cause any concern to anyone, just that we haven't heard from them for a while and was hoping someone had seen them and could pass on our email, just in case they have changed theirs or somehow lost ours, I am sure that everything is ok, thank you so much for replying.

Well I've found 3 Abracadabra's on marinetraffic... one in the N.Sea.. one in the Adriatic and the last in Lake Michigan...
So either they have not got AIS or they are out of range till they near the coast again

If you contact the office they'll confirm if the boat is there or not... you can then send your card/mail to the boat c/o that address..

Many thanks for letting me know, no doubt they are in Portugal as I expected. You don't have their new email do you? you can pm me if you do. Did they say where they were all off to this time? Happy new year!

Marinetraffic.com don't show all the ships. vesselfinder.com gives much more ships. For axample. We are at the moment in Melilla on the mediteranian coast of Afrika. Vesselfinder shows around 10 ships around Melilla at the moment, most commercial and 1 yacht. Marinetraffic shows 0 nada niente.
Our boat is never shows on marinetraffic but do so on vesselfinder.
