“Little Star (fka ‘Peggy Bee’) had some upgrades over the winter- we replaced her electric motor with a newer drive made by Electric Yacht of Golden Valley MN and new AGM batteries. Her topsides were painted ‘Flag blue’, the bottom was stripped and all exterior woodwork was varnished. She will soon be heading to her new home in Morehead city, NC. Congratulations to her owners and we wish them all the very best for their first season sailing ‘Little Star’!” as stated by Classic Boat Shop.
