The Queso III built in our yard in 1990 returned in October 2003 for a total refit. July 2005 this project finished and the rebirth to Sea Eagle was completed.
The rebirth include a two meter transom extension, a complete paint job, the replacement of the engineering systems and the provision of new engines, generators, pumps, water maker, airco, hydraulic systems, A/V equipment, navigational equipment.
Also a whole new interior and teak decks were part of the rebirth
The result is an all-new, all-aluminum speed machine, capable of over 40 knots.
Stanford later turned in his passport today to federal prosecutors, saying "he would not flee," according to one of Stanford’s lobbyists, Ben Barnes.
Stanford was located in the Fredericksburg, Virginia area, the FBI said in a statement.
Stanford is "very depressed," according to Barnes and sought to end a federal manhunt for him by directly approaching officials at the Justice Department, Barnes said.
Earlier this week, the SEC accused Stanford of defrauding 50,000 customers around the world by lying about the return rate on certificates of deposits offered by his firm, Stanford Financial.
