Irwin Citation 31

Hi all,

I am looking at an Irwin Citation 31, 1983. but do not know much about their reputation any thoughts?

We would be cruising it on the Chesapeake for overniters and week long cruises.

Thanks!

Hello,

I'm sure that Irwin owners love the boats, but I don't believe they have a reputation for good quality. A few years ago I was looking for a 33-38' boat and I looked at a few Irwin 34 Citation models. They all had bad leaks around chainplates and ports. Between that and some reviews I read that stated how thin the hulls were, I decided to look at other boats instead.
