when someone says irwin, i think water intrusion. deck / cabin. they are nice boats when in condition, but carpentry can be the biggie. i purchased a hand held moisture meter. it is a tool i wanted in my bag anyway, and it is a great way for anyone shopping to get one of the really big questioned answered before getting into survey. lets be honest - by the time you get to survey, you are emotionally invested and walking away is not easy unless they find a major problem - which is often moisture in deck or hull. at this point you have made several trips to the boat and can see yourself on the helm. high readings don't necessarily mean dead deal, but it changes the negotiation early on and, until resolved, keeps you from making the emotional shift.
