Sail Whisper

Whisper is looking for a new story to write a happy ending to her wanderings. Whisper is an Islander 32 fin-keel, diesel engine sailboat located in Truth or Consequences near Elephant Butte Lake in southern New Mexico. Because of a family tragedy, some other sailor will have to continue Whisper's voyage.

Whisper towers over her boatyard neighbors and is impressive to the eye.

Whisper's home port, Corpus Christi, was painted in anticipation of the owners' early retirement move to Rockport, Texas, near Corpus Christi Bay.

Just bought an Islander 32 last fall. She's in Maryland and I'm going to be sailing her back to Rhode Island in late May, early June. You have a lovely boat and I'm sorry your voyage has been cut short.

Best,

Leo Costantino

Actually, Whisper wasn't my boat; it belonged to a couple of friends. When one of the owners passed away, some of us in the sailing club helped his widow prepare the boat to be sold. Interestingly, Whisper seems to have wound up on the Texas Gulf Coast in the Port Aransas / Corpus Christi area, right where Rob and Marty had planned to begin their voyaging.
