Pros: Generally very solid build
Cons: Hull #4 is defective, and this is the first posting regarding that.

I was the shop foreman on the construction of 3 of the vessels. Hull #4 was not properly laid up in the glass department, and is only 3/8 thick at the thru-hull fittings. It should have been 7/8. Company owner hid this fact from the buyer.

Hello there Maryland - I have a Searaker 28 "Susie Q" and I wonder what the name of the boatmaker you were working at was and if you worked on the 28's?

Pros: Built by a profectionist
Cons:

My father hand built all these boats. He was a perfectionist. I also never knew of him having a shop foreman. Dad ran the business and he was 100% hands on. People were fired right and left for not doing a good job. Time magazine called the Searaker the best boat in the world.
