Re: 1969 Irwin 27' sloop
Was on my T27 for a quick overnight last night with a buddy on the Hudson River near the Tappan Zee Bridge. The river water was still quite warm so even if the ambient air temperature was near 48F on land it felt more like 58F on the river which is around 68F. Days and nights spent on the boat make me completely forget how much money I spend on her and makes it all worthwhile.
I'll guess that you will be mostly lake sailing with your I 27'?
I've never actually sailed on an Irwin 27' so I am only guessing as to it's handling characteristics based upon having sailed on smaller and much bigger boats than my current boat which I consider to be a close but distant cousin of yours.
