Hello all! We just became the proud owners of a 1988 Irwin 44 center cockpit. I was wondering if someone could link me to a page with the running rigging specs? I can't seem to find one. Thanks in advance!
Long Island Sound
We cruise Long Island Sound and have only slipped once for the rondayvous. (Although being liveaboards we are in a slip during the week) We love anchoring and know quite a few off the charts spots. A wind-scoop can turn a 2 knot breeze into a comfy draft inside. Once we cut...
Ok, there were 2 O'Days here so I figure I can post this here, right?
Ok folks, here are some pics:

The party starting and underway
Food and Fire
Haven't sailed Buzzards Bay yet, but we have gone to Block Island in a southerly with 4 foot chop. She handled it well enough for the admiral to be able to cook lunch. Same thing with Plum Gut. I love our boat and I don't think you'll be disappointed with one.
Ok George, Here's my 2 cents:
Go to Block, it's part of New England and everyone should say they've sailed there at least once. DON'T go this time of year. Seas can build to 6 feet real fast and that's no fun on a small boat. Watch your weather carefully when you do go. Blows come up suddenly...
Ok, found some more pics:
We were so interested in this shabby marina (There are boats in it!) that we missed the harbor channel!
What's a bowline???
The race creeps up on us. It actually followed us for 1/2 a mile!
Cool wire bird
Poaching marina facilities
Check you pockets before...
That's you guys! No, we missed out on the free beer, dammit. I guess we'll have to sail out there again for that. Are you guys considering the Port Jefferson raft up? August 13-15.
10 days on the boat
Ok, so I'm a week late posting here. I was waiting for the pics from the other camera to show up, but I'll start with what I have. The Admiral and I hit the boat late Thursday, so after a good nights sleep we headed to the grocery store and got rum, beer, and food. While the...
Ok folks, we made it a day early to Greenport. Sterling marina looks nice. Floating docks, nice looking Italian restaurant, ice, pool, and fuel. The town moorings are right outside the marina and they get $1.00/ft/night. Here's the number for the town moorings:
Ken is the...
