We at the Herrershoff Registry (http://www.herreshoffregistry.org) have been trying to determine the whereabouts or fate of Istalena. The latest is that in about 1970 she was stolen from a marina in New London and not heard from since. A few days after the theft, a boat sank off Cape Hatteras. The Coast Guard rescued the crew, but could not find out from that what boat they were on. Hmmm.
Wow!Does the Herreshoff registry know about this?rb
