That's my Irwin 38 Center cockpit above in the previous post
The reference to floating was after I had done all that stuff to the boat, would she still float? I could see myself getting carried away with the woodwork.

Think I could find a place for this in the boat?

Julie,

If you were willing to take out the aft stateroom and convert it to a wood shop, there would be room. You might have to figure out a way to change out the shop tools however... It isn't quite as large as your shop appears to be.

Sure, if the boat is large enough. Many boats have workshops, some large enough to hold that wonderful table.
A three cabin boat with two cabins aft, you could have a work shop on one side. Be a bit of a pain to get materials in, and finished work out.

Did you build that, or buy it?
I've built a few work benchs, none even close to that one.

I bought the bench and built the drawers. I've been told I put more TLC into that than some of the other projects I've done.

Now you're just showing off.

Dinnette was not a retrofit

It was standard on that year. The 76-81's had some differences then the later models including dinnette (convertible to large bunk) , solid fibreglass hulls, upright built in fridge etc

I have a 79 and I love it. In the process of refitting it.

One thing I will say is its easier to handle then you think. I had a 40' rear cockpit sailboat prior and I find sitting in the center cockpit gives me good visibility bow to stern.

In regards to work shop there's a cabin to starboard ahead of the salon with bunks that you could use or of course the dinnette...

The prices on these boats now are fantastic if you dont mind doing some cleanup. I would not be interested in purchasing the one that partially sank thats been out there however unless is was at least half the other prices

Re: Irwin 52' video. You gotta' see this...

Oh my! What a gorgeous sailboat! Thanks so much for this video. It gave me some really cool ideas. I am fixing up our boat and I DON'T want it to look like a "man cave". Thanks again....

Re: Irwin 52' video. You gotta' see this...

Not for me. I get dirty when I sail. I like to stand my boat on its side just about as far as I can get her to. I like to feel the spray of the sea on my face. I wouldnt be able to walk into a salon like that without feeling like I am not allowed to sit down, even if I owned it clean title.

The interior is I would think more suitable for a luxury yacht. Ive seen a good number of those that could use your magic hands for decor. That being said, free country, your money I cant knock that.
