Bob and I went to the beach and let the sun shine on
our heads. Next morning at the office, we created a
design with two small staterooms under the house
floor, which led to the “full-beam master stateroom”
under the pilothouse floor. We published it in my book
and called it the
Irwin S.
In 1985, I talked Jack Leek
into doing it on my 63-foot Ocean and many other
Ocean Yacht designs. Today, it is one of the most cop-
ied designs in the industry.
The photographs and plans of the 52 Ft. Ocean Yacht
Super Sport shown here are living proof of Irwin’s
creative genius and offer absolute proof that a univer-
sity should award him a Ph.D. for his discovery. As a
further test of Irwin’s theory, I am spending about
three hours a day in the sun at the beach in an
attempt to increase my brain power enough to write a
best selling book.
