I'm a newbie sailor, mostly lakes on boats no larger than 35'. I'm about to make a move to the coast and I'm looking to move onto a live aboard. I have found what I believe to be a pretty good deal on an Irwin
. I've read some troubling things about Irwins in blue water
, and although I'm not looking to stray too far from the coast at the moment (need some more experience before I do), I would like at some point in the future start making some crossings.
Does anyone on here own a Irwin
46 or have some insight into their performance in open water
? Any information you have would be helpful. As I said, I'm pretty new to the idea of living aboard
. I just don't want to get a boat that would not be a good option for hitting the open water in the future.
Thanks in advance for the help.
