If I recall correctly Joshua Slocum sailed a boat like this around the world around 1890 or so. It was called the 'Spray' and he did it single handed without an engine.
Perhaps the name 'Slocum' has got you under it's spell but you should sail it before you buy it.
It looks to be all wood (aka, a woodie) and lazy people seem to prefer plastic (FRP, GRP>>) boats over wooden boats for several reasons.
Hey, if you like the boat and bought it I would call you lucky or 'Slocum'.
