My Inter 20 has lain on the beach by my mothers house in sarasota for the last year or so and I just got a call that it was taken off the beach. There is no trailer access there it can only be taken over water. It is a non stock color so it is easy to identify, It is Ice Blue Awl Grip Like a very lgiht baby blue. It was taken over the last few days off of a private beach on siesta key. If anyone tries to sell you a I 20 with no sails that is a non stock color please call the cops. It would also be without daggerboards. I hope this forum will stay hot so people are on the lookout ...HELP!

thanks

Charlie

That sucks.. I'll keep my eye out. Make sure you check craigslist and stay alert on ebay for it.

Have you alerted the authorities in the area?

Was it tied down/anchored?

Look into the fact that your boat may be missing you and has gone out for a solo sail either unassisted or assisted. Most of the time in my part of the world it is the latter - some morons with nothing better to do launch the thing to see how it floats
let the coastguard know because they may have a report of an abandonned catamaran at sea
go and have a drive down h coast youself. They usually only go one way

You might also want to take a cruise through the parking lot at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron down at the end of Radio Road, there are lots of cats parked in the storage lot, see if yours has been recently added. And of course notify the manager of the club, to be on the lookout for a new addition, good that yours has a distinctive color, that will help.

Without a trailer they either pushed it out into the gulf to "see what would happen" or they picked it up (need at least 3-4 people) and carried it away, but with the mast up, that would be difficult. I'm betting some jackasses pushed it into the gulf for a joy ride or swim platform...then abandoned it.

Hope you find it.

is that blue as in Chip & Barb's N20 blue, or Jake's N20 blue?

What is with the rash of dissappearances lately? Are they using cats to smuggle people/drugs now that they found out how fast they are? Are people living under them now?

What ever happened to the report of that one cat (possible I-18/F18) washed up in Tampa Bay?

Jay,
It' a one of a kind blue. It's looks white with a small hint of light blue. Like an ice cube.

Joyriding or just the vandalism of pushing it off the beach is really common. It might be close by.

I'm for the "look down the coast" idea. How about renting a small plane and flying really low down the coast and look for your boat washed up somewhere?

Better than just waiting for the Coasties or Fish and Game.

My neighbors house was stripped completely a few weeks ago from Cape Cod. They brought in a moving van and took everything including appliances. Caught the scum a week later in Iowa. They had a regular route stealing stuff on the East Coast and bringing it to California to sell/pawn. Then they robbed a place in California and brought it to the East Coast to sell/pawn. Only got caught because they got into an accident and had no papers for the goods in the van.
My point is... EVERYONE from coast to coast needs to watch for this boat. Damn shame. Hope it's just a "float away".

Good luck.

Not much point if you haven't got a boat!

I have had a boat in the past pushed out, hatch covers removed and sunk by some d!ckheads just for a laugh. Luckly for me it was in only a few meters of water and I saw the stick coming out.
