Irwin 28 - 1974 - where to start
 
We are the new owners of a Irwin 28.5, 1974. Was a free boat that will now require more $ and time. It has not been sailed in at least 2 years. Bottom job is a given and will done soon. I have drained 18 gallons of gas from the tank, put in new plugs, cleaned the filter, new batteries and will soon attempt to start her.

Any advice from other Atomic 4/Irwin owners on starting procedure for an engine that has sat this long. Once we confirm the Atomic will not require huge funds we will move forward with checking the rigging, cleaning and restoring what will be a great little cruiser.

Thanks in advance for suggestions and assistance!

It's not the start of the race that's important; it whether or not you finish. The yards are full of unfinished projects.

Just a suggestion...if you have questions specific to an Irwin, ask here. For other questions, you are better off elsewhere. Atomic 4 questions would be better asked on the gear and maintenance forum, or even better, google Atomic 4 and see if there is an owners forum just for that engine.
