Just saw the coolest pics of a telstar with some serious upgrades on the international forum

Florida guy sailed his Telstar to the Bahamas and had posted some pretty sweet pics of his boat with upgrades. I contacted him and am going to see if we can link up with him and see his upgrades in the near future. I like guys like this that think outside the box and enhance what they have.

Help this Guy find his Sailboat

Sailboat disappears from Intracoastal Waterway -

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a 39 foot sailboat that disappeared from the Intracoastal Waterway where it was anchored near Riviera Beach.
The boat’s owner says the sailboat named “Tethys” was stolen sometime over the weekend.
“I’m devastated. It’s everything I’ve worked and put my heart into,” the boat’s owner Roger Rogers said.
Rogers says it is unusual for a sailboat to go missing. It is not insured and he fears it could already be hundreds of miles away.
“It’s still hard for me to comprehend that it is not gone,” Rogers said.
The sailboat has special meaning to Rogers because he became sober while learning to sail.
He was using his boat to give back to other people in a similar situation.
“Helping others who were in the situation I was and are now on the boat enjoying it. It was a bond that was deep rooted in our souls,” Rogers said.
Rogers says detectives are reviewing surveillance video up and down the Intracoastal and talking to bridge tenders.
If you have any information about the boat’s whereabouts, contact the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Rogue Seas

We had about 3 foot chop and winds up to about 18. We had about 4 turns on the genoa. Still having problems with the genny and need to work on it again. It keeps getting stuck and very difficult to furl in the line. I have worked on it a handful of times and still am having an issue.
