Peggy, a 61′ Briglia Boatworks recently underwent repairs at the Jarrett Bay Marine Park. With Project Manager Steven Blackwell taking the lead, Peggy was brought back to her original splendor and beauty – leading to this remarkable letter of praise from her owner.


I am deeply indebted to Jarrett Bay Boatworks and to Steven Blackwell for the fantastic work on my boat PEGGY. As you both are aware, my boat hit an unlit channel marker on our way out of Beaufort Inlet during Blue Fin Tuna season. My boat captain, Mike Guthrie, did a superb job in getting the boat safely to Jarrett Bay Boatworks. He called our contact at Jarrett Bay at 5:30 a.m. in the morning and your staff met us at the boatyard with the crane to lift our boat out of the water. If not for your prompt attention, the boat was at risk of sinking in the channel.

We also obviously had significant damage to the hull and other areas of the boat. The body work and painting repairs were excellent. Steven Blackwell, as project manager, was a pleasure to deal with and kept me informed through the entire process. I really cannot give you all enough praise for it to be adequate. You have earned your wonderful reputation one boat owner at a time. I truly appreciate the care, diligence, and attention to detail you have shown to my boat and to me.

Best regards,


Briglia - Peggy
