Tiki 21 Missing in the Florida Keys

I just got word from my friend, Dan Kunz, the owner of my old Tiki 21, formerly known as Element, that his boat has gone missing from its mooring in Islamorada.

Dan isn't sure if the Tiki 21 has been stolen or if it somehow came loose from its lines, but it was well  secured with double redundancy on all lines and chains.

Dan has put out the word to the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Customs, and the local sheriff's department. If you see this boat in the waters of the Keys or beyond, please get in touch with one of these agencies or Dan directly at

The current Florida registration number on the hull is:  FL 0809 NW.  H.I.N. TXZ65126F92.

Here's an old photo from when I had her with the former name: Element. The current name is Forever Young.
