Irwin vs. O'Day

Hey all,

There are two boats I'm eyeballing. One is a 77 Irwin 37' CC and the other is a 80 O'Day 37' CC. Both are pretty lengthy drives for me to go checkout. I'd like to know any opinions of one vs the other. Both are pretty close in price. I seem to recall most people having pretty good opinions of the O'Days but don't know too much about the Irwin's.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: Irwin vs. O'Day

They are both old boats and come from a time when builders were still learning that fiberglass was way stronger then wood. That is why so many older boats are still a good value.

keel bolts bulkhead rot, soft decks are top of my list on old boats.
