Re: PNW - Skookum 53 Re-Fit


I would suggest updating your profile with your general location and your boat make & model or “Looking” in the "Boat" category. This info shows up under your UserName in every post in the web view. Many questions are boat and/or location dependent and having these tidbits under your UserName saves answering those questions repeatedly. If you need help setting up your profile then click on this link:

If you need further help let me know, I would be happy to.

Any information would help.
Thank you all in advance.

A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.

Re: PNW - Skookum 53 Re-Fit

Hello Bill,
I own a Skookum 53 and love the boat. I am new to Cruisers Forum site and just discovered your posts. Bought the boat at Port Angeles, WA and shipped her from Victoria,B.C. to Palm Beach, Florida aboard a heavy lift ship in 2020. Original name was "Sharla Sue", Port Townsend 1978. Hull No. SKKOO151M77D, Doc. No. 601078. Later named "Dhochas" out of Astoria, Oregon, and "Bersugget", Port Angeles. Now berthed at my home port of Point Judith, RI and renamed "Lucky". Please reply if you read this. You guys are generous with your information and advice.
