  During the first two weeks of cruising on board the Starr, owners Sharry and Don Stabbert were familiarized with the boats systems and operations by continuing crew members Rob and Donna. The Stabberts cruised the Starr through familiar waters of B.C.’s Desolation Sound, and then returned the boat to Seattle for some refitting and new equipment at Delta Marine.

  The Starr proved to be both sea worthy and comfortable, with good stability, fuel economy and accommodations. The boat has cruised from Seattle to the Mediterranean and back, by way of the Panama Canal, most recently under the supervision of crew members Rob and Donna. The Stabberts plan to cruise extensively along the west coast of Mexico and then begin a voyage throughout the Pacific.

An open house was held on board the Starr at Seattle’s Bell Street Marina, to welcome friends and family of owners Sharry and Don Stabbert. Guests joined the Starr after the successful refitting of new equipment to the vessel, and prior to the beginning of its long range voyage throughout the Pacific.

The Starr had just returned from the yard at Delta Marine in Seattle, where it received a new satellite dome, twin rudders replaced the single rudder, and a bimini top was fitted to the flybridge, along with other updates and revisions. The Stabberts planned to begin a long voyage to Mexico the following week.
