The quote below is from a CMS-NAMS Certified Marine Surveyor who did an Insurance Survey for the owner in May 2022......
"In general, the vessel, "Divine Miss Em" was found to be structurally sound and in very good overall mechanical and cosmetic condition due to a high level of maintenance and continued improvements and upgrades. Approximately $50,000 has been invested recently to include an all-new Victron battery and electrical system, new mainsail and Mack Stack."
The original owners sold Divine Miss Em back to the Slocum Dealer (Mr Brown) after just two years of ownership.
Over the next 14 years Mr Brown continued to upgrade Divine Miss Em installing the
Yanmar 75 hp engine, the Northern Lights genset, and improving her fuel/water tanks
and bilge compartments.
In 2006 Mr. Brown sold Divine Miss Em to her current owners....
