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

I just saw the video. OMG! I could so do that! Except for all the knickknacks. But the woodwork, the customization, the sail-worthy creature comforts? Yeah, I could see me diving into that. I need a new hobby anyway.

1984 Irwin 52 - $87,000
Fixin' her up real nice - probably another $87,000

Aaarrrgggghhh!!! But will she float?

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

Good use of a necro-bump on this thread. Otherwise, I would've missed it. Wow, Oceanaire.....just, wow! That boat of yours is absolutely stunning. Naysayers be damned, but any person that puts that kind of effort into ANYTHING deserves nothing but kudos. Being a layman's luthier, I know how much true effort can pay off, and in your boat, yours shines through in every nook & cranny, so-to-speak. Hats off, my man.....hats off!

And if you guys ever need the wife and I to fly down (or up for that matter) and "boat-sit", just shoot me a message. It would be a sacrifice, but what are sailing buds for, right?

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

I love the outfit on the boat. And after 10 years on an Irwin 54' I just don't get the basing of the line. Yes there were a few boats that had issues, but that could be said for almost every builder.

The one thing I noticed was it looks to me like the dinette on the port side was actually a refit addition. I may be wrong, but on our 54, and a friends 52, where your dinette is was originally a stateroom. For us it was a necessity because we had five people living aboard. We also stripped out the bunk beds and switched it to a single berth that was larger than the bunk beds.

All in all I loved the Irwin, and despite many boats since then, it has always has a special place in my heart. No the least because of the way it sailed (at least with a good trade wind).

Yep, it's a Irwin, nothing wrong with that.

Julie, see the post above, they not only float, they sail and do it well.
That's my Irwin 38 Center cockpit above in the previous post
