Re: Irwin 37

The designs of Irwins are generally pretty decent but the execution can be very subject, they had a tendency to cut corners on critical things like thru-hulls.......using gate valves instead of seacocks etc. I saw one that used chrome plated brass sink drains for cockpit scuppers, sink drains are typically made from VERY thin brass. This one in particular was practically crumbling.
I am not sure about later models like the one you're looking at.
