Hello all. While I am new member here, I have been reading your posts for some time now. I am semi-retired and recently relocated to the Norfolk, Va area from San Diego to be near family and to live the dream of living aboard. In a little over a week I will be purchasing a 1972 Irwin 32. The boat is not my ideal but the price was irresistable and comes with a liveaboard slip. As in all older boats, there are many things to be done and this forum looks to be the place to be for tips, tricks and advice.

Re: New member

Thanks all for the welcome. It was the fist marina I visited and the dockmaster told me of the boat. Sheer dumb luck.
