Slocum 43
My wife and I finally made the decision to become liveaboards. We currently own a 32'' Westerly but its just too small for both of us. We stumbled across a Slocum 43 but we don''t have much knowledge of this make. I think it was manufactured in Taiwan. Our plan is to cruise this boat in the Gulf of Mexico along the Texas-Louisiana coast. Can anyone shed some light about the Slocum 43, its construction or its sailing ability?

We have a Slocum 43 and if you are still interested I will be glad to answer any questions. We have owned her for 6 years and she is very safe and a stable passage maker along with being a very comfortable home. Reply thru this thread, or e-mail.

Slocum43WT - I would like to talk to you more specifically about the Slocum - but your email is not coming up - can you pm me?

Considering that Slocum43wt's last post was this post in 2007, and he only had 3 posts, and his email is no longer valid, my guess is that he's long gone.

I own a Slocum 43 would be happy to answer questions

We own an 84 built Slocum 43 and keep her in the Abacos. Would be happy to tell you all we know about these boats. PM me or perhaps start a new post.

PTAPAUL was considering buying a Slocum 43, and then he disappeared. SLOCUM43WT had a Slocum 43, and then he disappeared too. Do the boats sink and take their owners with them? Or is this such a great boat that people go off cruising and stop wasting their time surfing the internet? Enquiring minds want to know...

Thanks Rod

eharan 09-14-2009 08:35 PM Slocum 43 owners around?

Since I own a Slocum I can tell you the answer is the latter... they go sailing..
