Caribea interior has been heavily rebuilt and reinforced. The bulkheads were replaced with 1.5" marine plywood and bonded in place.
The centerline cockpit layout for the Irwin is typical of other center cockpits with the large aft cabin and en-suite head/shower, walk thru past the nav station and engine access to port of the companionway and a step down to the galley starboard. It has a large dinette/salon with a lots of storage under and behind the settees. And forward, the cabin has been modified to eliminate the berth but add the new (unused) washer/dryer and added storage. The forward head/shower remain but have been completely rebuilt.
The floors have been rebuilt but not finished out or recarpeted. All new cushions need to be added to the salon. But air conditioning of 26K Btu's has been added aft and in the salon, all new lighting, and all new (unused) electric heads have been added.
The plumbing has been redesigned and built into a manifold system with a continuous pressure pump. Three new fiberglass tanks for water were added during the refit.
For entertainment, a new flat screen TV with mast mounted antenna and new stereo system were built into the salon bulkhead as well.
The galley cabinets and Formica counters are new. A new standup, full size refrigerator/freezer with cold plates was added during the rebuild. It can operate on 12VDC or 110VAC. Also added are an electric range and oven, microwave, new 15 gal water heater.
A new Sea Recovery water desalinization system is installed. At 480 gallons per day capacity, it can supply plenty of water for the different systems. All water from the galley and showers the goes to a gray water tank with automatic pump out.
The propulsion system has been completely replaced. The engine is a rebuilt GM Detroit 453 diesel (120 hp) with basically 0 hours. An new prop shaft, dripless stuffing box, and prop have also been installed. A grounding zinc brush is on the shaft to replace the exterior zinc. There are new aluminum fuel tanks for an approximate capacity of 500 gallons. A solidly plumbed fuel system manifold has been built electris priming system and includes the generator fuel supply as well. In addition there is an automatic oil change for both engines.
The electrical is centered around a rebuilt Westerbeke 8 kw diesel generator with basically 0 hours located under the nav station table. The genset is complimented by a new 2.8KW inverter with battery charger. There are 4 Lifeline AGM 8D house batteries, one Lifeline 8D engine start battery and another for the generator. These are all linked by a selector switch system to allow for use separately or in combination. The electrical system is controlled by a new panel, breaker switches, and shore power tie-ins.
The lights have a monitoring panel that shows the status of all lights.
Sails and Rigging
Both the standing and running rigging have been replaced and the chain plates reinforced. Sails include the genoa, staysail, mizzen and spinnaker stored indoors while rebuild was in progress. A new mainsail is needed. Head sails are designed to be hanked on so there is not a furling system. A new Harken traveler has been installed over the hard bimini for the mainsheet. The mast has lightning dissipation and grounding.
The deck has been sanded and readied for finish out but not completed. All new Hood hatches and port lights were installed during the cabin refinish. New stanchions have been installed but new lifelines are still needed. A full enclosure fiberglass bimini and hard dodger were added to protect the cockpit. New turning blocks bases are added but need finish. Blocks to be added are in storage. A new electric windlass was added and dual anchors are included but new rode is necessary.
