ACCOMMODATIONS

This highly customized Irwin 68 was completed in 1990 to a much higher construction specification than standard sistership designs. Earl Blackwell, Jones & Associates, specialists in manufacturing process and design engineering, specified and blueprinted to a heavier hull and deck laminate that meet the National American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) standard.
