On April 27, 2018 the A1A bridge in Jupiter Florida had a lightning strike. SPARHAWK was in one of the closer slips in the marina adjacent to the bridge. Her ship systems experience a power surge damaging some of the electrical systems on board. Her owner instructed her captain to commence a comprehensive electrical and ship systems refit. Since her refit she has run 1500 miles up the east coast and is currently fishing the summer season in the north Atlantic canyons. All work orders and invoices associated with the refit are available upon request and the vessel captain who oversaw the refit is available for questions.
