Re: Irwin - Bluewater Capable???

That's a 65 - mine is a 38 center cockpit (not Citation).

I removed my entire push pit and re-bedded the stanchions last summer when doing the toe rail and the old 'Irwin' davit removal. Every one of them was a 2.5 inch SS screw coming out.
The rest of the stanchions will be getting pulled and refastened this summer. Most are just two screws only the pulpit and push pit areas have three screws. I'm pretty darn sure it's all original as the previous owners kept meticulous records on everything they did.
I don't anticipate any more than a three day trip offshore; it'll do.
