They've owned her since '89; she was not necessarily new then. Whether marine growth is an issue will have little to do with the design and all to do with the paint used and the waters she lives in. All boats will be slowed by such growth, of course.


FWIW I believe that most owners going offshore with these boats will have taken storm protection measures for those largish portlights.
