1972 Irwin 30

I haven't been on here inna while. Last year I bought a Pearson P-28-1 which I have been working on and off with. I just about have her ready to haul to the Texas coast with plans to go to Central America. She is pretty much a bare bones boat, but I have endeavored to fix some neglected problems and have decided to keep the A-4 engine.

Here's a new dilemma....I have been approached by a party who has an Irwin 30 already in the water on the coast with a running diesel engine. The boat looks to be in reasonably good shape. The draft is a little more than my P-28, but still acceptable.

Has anyone had any offshore experience with these Irwin's and , if so, how do they stack up against the Pearson's? I am very happy with the construction of my P-28.

Thanks!
