I have a 1975 28.5 Irwin Mark iV in SE Florida. At some point a few months ago, my swing keel detached itself and went on its own merry journey. Does anyone know of any salvage yards in the area where I might try to locate a replacement? Or any other potential ideas as to getting a suitable replacement. Having a new one manufactured costs more than she is worth right now. That said, she's too good a vessel to give up on.
smallyachts, that would be awesome if it fit. I have attached a line drawing of the original keel from Irwin. If it fits (even if its a little small), I could drive up to Tampa and buy it from you. I have a pickup. Have a look and please let me know.
