    Last time I was aboard SLIM,about 2 years ago, she was in very good shape. I saw her from the outside a few weeks ago, and she still looked very good.

    If you would like to pm me, we could talk about the boat at greater length. I am going to be at the St Michaels classic boat show this weekend, but available on my cell.

    She was here at Huckins in a covered slip for a while. Then moved to Lambs.
    She is pretty.

    Saw her at Huckins a couple years ago when we raced Daytona. She's well kept even in brokerage.

    The Seafarer is a great layout below, and Slim has the benefit of a large enclosed upper deck and a useful cockpit. She appears to be a good value, obviously not an actionable statement simply an observer statement.
