    Just a note. That 55x18 Pluckebaum has a bit of nostalgia attached to it. That was the very first boat the Dennis Pluckebaum rolled out of his shop under the Pluckebaum Custom Houseboat name. I heard this straight from Dennis. That owner had Pluckebaum add the enclosed flybridge to it after the fact and Dennis drove it up river with a bunch of friends to deliver it back to the owner. The owner said they used it for one year after that and it has sat dormant since. Ugly but a fantastic buy.

    if that's the case, have that cabin taken off and a flybridge added and it should still be a bargain.

    Good Luck with what ever you decide on. Be sure to come back and post pics of your new boat.

    I'm concerned that that draft on the 95 Plucke is 4'. That would make beaching very difficult. Thoughts?

    Mountaineer can talk more about this, but he has a 65' Plucke and has no issue beaching. It will make a really nice cut in the beach so make sure it is deep sand and not dirt with rocks under.
