Re: Endeavour/Irwin 32 vs Irwin 34

I wish I could make an informed comment regarding the design differences between The E. 32 vs. I-32, but alas I've never been aboard an Endeavour. I will say I am completely besotted by my Irwin 32 1972 vintage which I sail on the Great Lakes. She looks great and sails fine with a great sea kindly motion. Quick to heel though with her narrow beam, but soon stiffens up with the 5200 lbs of lead ballast. mine is the centerboard model and can be easily balanced by tweaking centerboard, sail trim..
Good luck on your choices-in my case the previous owner well cared for her so I lucked out.
