Irwin Citation 32'

I am looking at an Irwin Citation 32' 1986. The ports on the hull are making me a little scared about what happens when the boat heels. Has anyone had any experience with ports that might go below the water when underway??

BlackriverOne,
I bought a 32' Irwin Citation last October(2009) and sailed a lot this summer. I love the boat it handles and points very well. I have had the windows under water more than once with no problems. As long as you don't forget to close the windows before you cast off you won't have a problem. (So far I haven't forgotten). The best part of the ports is when your down below and the boat is heeled over, you can see under the water, its like being in a submarine.
I hope this helps, good luck, be safe and keep sailing.
