Cool Re: Irwin - Bluewater Capable???

Ok guys, I sanded my hull down to bare fiberglass and found chop over, heavy fiberglass mess. The mesh looked like you're typical place mat, and I think the chop was then blown over for extra thickness and maybe to make the cosmetics easy to arrive at.

I drilled out a thru-hull about 1.5' down from the deck for an extra bilge pump and at that location, the hull was 3/8" thick.

Mine was built in Fort Lauderdale in 1970 and 1st titled in '71.
