Any Shucker Owners

I’m just about done with the buying process for a Shucker 436.
I would love to be able to discuss with you the things to watch out for, bits and hints. Of course I have nothing to contribute, so far anyway.
Thanks

I don't own a Schucker, but was considering one about 10 years ago. If you haven't found it already, there was a very good Schucker Owners group on Yahoo with a large amount of information in their archives.

I looked at a few Schuckers before I found mine. My boat is close to a Schucker, but it doesn’t have as much room as yours IIRC.

The only other member-Shucker I know of is Janice’s live-aboard trawlette. She’s really proud of Seaweed (and should be), and one can find many shares from Janice right here on the Forum. She’s one of the most knowledgeable and experienced of our members, and she’s a writer at-large for various publications. Check out her excellent Website.

It’s an Island Packet PY cruiser, the “trawler” version of their pilothouse SP cruiser. But I added a mast to it for stability, get home, because I wanted one, etc.

I think he (my eldest son) ran the boom way out and tied it off. Then strung the hammock from the boom gooseneck to the end of the boom I think. So he’s hanging over the water I think.

Hey Bones,

I've owned a 438 flybridge going on 3 yrs now. I know just enough to be dangerous but am just starting a major refit so my learning curve is quite steep. Crazy how many variations of interiors on them!

I followed the link twice before requesting info membership to no avail. Tonight I tried again and received an invite and address to follow. It says I am a member but I guess I am to dense to use the site as I see no content, I followed more supposedly AT&T sign in info but it left me on a page with no option to move forward. Oh well.
Thanks
