1977 Irwin 42 Center Cockpit

I have been looking at one of these and have not found a lot of information on them. In reading through the Irwin section here, there is a bit of information on other models, but nothing too specific to the 42.

We are looking to upgrade from our current Columbia 36. There is an Irwin 42 that has caught our eye that is in decent condition. Our Columbia 36 has been in and out of blue water from past owners, but from what I can see, the Irwins may not be suited to blue water very well. I guess the Columbia 36 was not made for blue water either.

Anyone with any ideas here?
