The hull is red on bottom, white in the middle and black on top with fake white gun ports. The bow has the name Peggy on it. The deck has railing around the bow and stern. There are cabins, hatches and 2 lifeboats on deck. The standing shrouds are black and the other rigging off white. The narrow strip of land has a small lighthouse and 4 houses. There are 10 palm type trees the length of the land. On the bottom of the bottle are 2 labels. One reads "Made by J. Harrison Hillswick, Shetland Isles." The other label says "To Peggy Butler from Bob Berry 18.6.1974."
