Additional Information
The "Blue Bill" was in Jupiter Florida in 2018 when the bridge next to the marina she was berthed at was struck by lightning. The resulting power surge caused electrical damage to several boats in the marina. Electing not to repair electrical items, her owner had everything electrical that was suspect completely replaced, hence the reason for many new electrical items in 2018. She has run up and down the east coast several times since, and has spent 2 summers fishing extensively throughout the mid-Atlantic. She is as clean a vessel you will find, has been constantly maintained and cared for and her many upgrades will service her new owners for many years to come.
