Re: New Irwin Owner

What is it you think should be done every 750 hrs?? An over-haul...to what extent? I usually equate an over-haul with at least a top end complete tear down...seems excessive for only 750 hrs, but I am no mechanic...just want to hear more on this....

Also, New Irwin owner....good luck in your task, I just did a mini restoration on a 76' Irwin 30, beefed up the bulkheads , fixed the plumbing issues added a bunch of nice mahogany to warm it up inside ( it was a spartan type race set-up) and so much more. Was allot of fun working on her, but of course as others have noted...it is a continuous seemingly never ending job, but there is the beauty of it all, re-creating something new from something old, along with a satisfaction of actually getting something done...Fair winds!
