    I have made a lot of changes like extending the mast 5' to carry a very large spinnaker and a cut down Star Class mainsail.

    It works very well for the light airs we have in Sarasota, FL.

    I have the original mainsail for heavy air days.

    She is for sale with an excellent road worthy 2 wheeled trailer.

    She has freshly recovered cushions for the main cabin in navy blue with white piping.

    I have made many improvements to make her very comfortable for day sailing.

    She has a nylon sling and running backstays that allow me to launch and be ready to sail in 20 minutes using the hoist at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron. Here is a slide show created with Roxio 10 Slideshow Creator.

    It includes several photos of another Irwin 23 found Internet that show the design very well. Contact the owner for a more extensive slideshow with photos of the interior and trailer.

    The 3 hp Yamaha is mounted on a bracket for the best depth with a Kort Nozzle for extra thrust. It is excellent for day sailing, makng docking and undocking easy.

    The main cabin cushions have been recovered in navy blue with white piping. There is a very large inventory of sails including the very large spinnaker2
