Not sure how I feel about covered slips.

The one on the left is a Cheseapeake deadrise, I assume. What about the on the right?

Best type of slip for wood boats! Keep the fresh water off the decks/topsides. That is where most rot stems from. Keeps maintenance down too- less varnish/paint

Not sure what the one on the right is but from the side it has some down low cool, doesn't jump out very well in the picture. Me, I wish I had a covered slip, the sun really chews up paint and rubber seals. The only downside is birds nesting in the rafters, it has to be constructed or set up with bird netting to keep them out.

At a glance ,reminds me of a MacKenzie
I am sure it is not a MacKenzie it has some tumblehome that does not show well in the picture. I will ask about her the next time I go to visit my boat over the coming months.

The only way to keep a wood boat alive and well, is in a covered slip.
The 1986 Dave Rollins-built 35' Perkins-powered deadrise, is alive and well because she has always lived in a covered slip.
Covered slips will also prolong the gel coat life of them thar fiberglass boats too.
UV rays are as harmful to gel coat, as fresh water is to wood.
That's a 2005 Seaway 21 Seafarer that has always been covered.

No sir , I do not own it, I just know it’s not a Mackenzie as I’ve owned a few. Were I to venture a guess I would suspect it’s a New Jersey built Boat.

I second the motion of 1 OLD BUZZARD. It has a Jersey Sea Skiff look.

Here's an artist rendering of a Bay Head sea skiff, and a photo of a 1961 28-foot Hubert Johnson sea skiff.
