The Irwin 34 Citation centerboard sloop owned by Captain Troy Cain, moored in Carr Creek, Annapolis, MD is named "Relentless". Given the persistent cruising attitude of her owner, it is no surprise that "Relentless" has cruised much of the central Chesapeake Bay.
Captain Murph has been fortunate to crew with Captain Cain on numerous occasions, including sails to Queenstown, Rock Hall, Baltimore, St. Michaels, Kent Narrows, Oxford, Balls Creek, and Leeds Creek.
"Relentless" has benefitted from some of Captain Murph's canvas and boatyard efforts including a new wheel and binnacle cover, a new companionway cover, installation of a new roller furler, and teak finishing.
The Irwin 34 was designed by Ted Irwin, who also designed Captain Murph's Endeavour 32. The 34 specifications are:
LOA - 34'7"
LWL - 27'4"
Beam - 11'3"
Draft - Centerboard Up - 4'0"
Draft - Centerboard Down - 8'1"
