A slip is a place to moor along side of the dock.
"Slip room" is not a nautical term.
There is also the term "slipway", which is a ramp such as used for launching ships.
To say "We lack slip room" would mean there is no place to berth the boat/ship.
Slip can also mean the difference between indicated speed and actual speed or theoretical distance the prop would travel in a single revolution.
A slip can also mean the ship is insured.

I don't know but I have always been curious about what the "poop deck" is! LOL
I love going on cruises! but, I get it that it is very different than being in the Navy! (I know what the mess and sick bay are!)
