sidney777 Your discussion thread started in 2003. I think you will have to make the decision about the effort. Not sure what you mean by investment. If you mean for Resale or for your sailing adventure ? If you think its worth the time, work and money, then the whole project sounds worthwhile for you. I'm guessing you bought it cheaper than buying a sailboat that is ready to sail now.

haggerty60 gcargen: You may be able to get ahold of centerboard with a neadle nose vicegrip. work it up and to free it. Maybe run a thin flat knife like rod along each side to free it up. Good luck, waiting for spring.

gcargen I have found the centerboard is stuck up in the slot. the cable going thru the hull is lose but it wont come down. I can see up into the slot & it's rusted & split out. Any Ideas on how to get it out? was it originaly just steel or is mine a replacement. When I get it out & clean it up should I just paint it or glass it? Any thoughts?

irwin 27

gcargen: My centerboard winch is on the floor in frount of the engin.The cable runs under the floor to a pully and back to a brass rod. The rod goes in and out dropping the centerboard,there is apacking on the rod,no leaks.I have seen the winches at the back cockpit and in front of it go figer. I had some window leaks I fixed. Did my none skid in kiwi grip great stuff.Just inspect everything,fix whatever and sail her .

Irwin 27

My hull #is 1347 . I didn't know there where that many. It's very encouraging to here they are well built & take the seas well. I have started to sand the decks for some new paint & have the A4 running well. She was a lake boat (Lake Ontario) so I don't see any salt water problems. Any problems with the centerboard cables or pulleys or leaking?
I haven't really got a chance to check it out but that cable has to come threw the hull somehow.

Thanks
Gary

IMHO what Jeff H said is not true of the early Irwins and certainly not true of my 1968. I sold, rigged and sailed many models as a manager of a dealership and generally the overall quality didn't decline until the price of oil went up.

jkitchens23 The Irwin 27 is a great boat! I have never seen one with carpet glued to it but that is a fairly normal thing. My Irwin sails great and is tough as nails! It survived Ike with only a few scratches even though it ended up miles away and about 100 yards up a hill from the water.
