Don't worry I was in the same situation almost 1 year ago but you know what, when you have no alternative, you got to drive it! And everything will be fine!

Schuckers are great boats. Is a 438 the same as a 436 with a flybridge instead of a mast & sailing rig?

I grab some pics tomorrow and it is the trawler version of the motorsailor. Looked at a sailor and knew I miss the outside space the flybridge provides. I'm an otr trucker so I can't wait to quadruple my living space!

One good way to learn to drive your boat is to hire an experienced captain for a few hours of on the water training. Look for one with experience with your type of boat. Not necessarily the same brand, but something similar.

Well, survey went very well yesterday, couple of small issues to address when I take possession but she showed really well. Of course in the excitement I didn't take a single pic! She's still listed on Yachtworld in Palmetto FL with some photos. Previous owner and the broker are more than willing to help with my training as 6 months of moorage were included in the deal.
Now, insurance, naming and staying in the truck to pay for it all...

Congrats on the new boat! Sure looks like a lot of boat for the buck. Looks like she'll be easy to single hand with those nice wide side decks and salon doors.
