Winchester Design Group and Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering in Fort Lauderdale designed the extension. The work was performed at Owl Creek Boat Works in Alva, Florida. 

This extension was completed in 2003 and cost in excess of $700,000. At the same time both engines were completely overhauled and two brand new generators were installed. The extension included a large aft deck, stand-up garage/workshop, electrical refit, and additional fuel and water tankage.
