This boat is well built. The aft cabin is very comfortable. She turns on a dime. I'm looking for other owners to share experiences with. I love this boat. I sail the Chesapeake Bay.

Pros:
Cons:



Athwartship aft berth great for an extra couple or kids. Large center cockpit with excellent visibility and access to sheets. Extremely well built with many features not found on boats of this length. Somewhat over powered in winds above 18 knots will usually require taking a reef in the main. Boat actually sails much better in gusty conditions with both sails reefed. If lots of cruising intended, might want to install a larger alternator [Balmar 90 a great choice] . Cruising the Maine coast in just about all kinds of weather and have found this a very safe and comfortable boat.

The center cockpit is really nice for our needs. We especially like the rear stateroom. While boat is a little short on storage, the other plus features make up for that shortfall. I've been really impressed with the high quality of the boat and the remarkable condition after 18 years in the water. Fiberglass work is really good. S2 is a quality boat and it is a real shame that they are out of production.

We have added a microwave and continue to "maintain" and improve to our liking other features of the boat. Have been impressed with the comfort of the boat. With two people on board, it is most comfortable. As we enjoy weekends and day sailing, the boat is perfect for us and our son's occasional visits.

We are still learnig the sailing characteristics and become more comfortable with the boat each outing. Have gotten into heavy winds only once when we were really holding on and wondering what was going to happen next!!!! A great cruising boat - and who knows - maybe a racing future???? Nah!!! I like creature comforts too much.

Pros:
Cons:

GREAT DESIGN WITH DECENT BUT NOT EXTREME DRAFT. WELL MADE AND A SHAME NOT STILL IN PRODUCTION. THE CC SETS YOU COMFORTABLY HIGH AND DRY. AFT CABIN IS A DELIGHT FOR THE LADY OF THE BOAT. ROOMY FOR A COUPLE AND CAN HANDLE FOUR COMFORTABLY. STORAGE IS GOOD FORA CC AND ADDITIONAL STORAGE BOXES ON THE EXTERIOR OFFSET INTERIOR LOSSES. CAN BE SAILED FAST TO SATISFY THE RACER BUT PRIMARILY WE CRUISE. A BIT UNDERPOWERED WITH THE YANMAR 2GM. CONSIDERING A 3 BLADED PROP TO HELP. I AM THE SECOND OWNER OF WINDWALKER. SHE HAS BEEN A FRESH WATER BOAT SINCE COMMISSIONING AT LAKE HARTWELL, SC. MY WIFE AND I HAVE WORKED ON THE CREATURE COMFORTS. ADDING A FULL ENCLOSURE HAS MADE WINTER SAILING TOLERABLE. AN INVERTER AND MICROWAVE MAKE US PRETTY SELF SUFFICIENT. OH FOR THE 36' VERSION! WE MADE A GOOD CHOICE IN BUYING THIS BOAT.

Pros:
Cons:

I bought Swee'Pea in April, 2000. I've spent the summer getting to know her. She is a shoal draft model with a yanmar 27hp diesel.The diesel was a retrofit and a valued improvement. I sail in a lake in Colorado, so I do trailer her to and from the lake. So far I've found that the boat has more main sail than is usable in all but a light breeze. I have replaced the standard main with a main that has a shorter foot dimention, resulting in a more balanced helm. No loss in upwind performance was noticed. The interior is the strong point of the boat. Few 30 footers have as usable an interior. The galley is the only weak piont in the interior. It has no open counter space for preparing food and the ice box/refrigerator is in the hall to the aft cabin. I added a fold down counter at the forward end of the galley to correct this problem at the cost of 1 foot of port side settee space. Interior storage is adequate and the head is roomy. The tub is cute, but unusable. The space is better used for storage. The boat has 10 opening ports so the ventelation is good. The ports are plastic and do get brittle with age. I plan on replacing mine with chrome plated bronze from Newfound Metals. Unless you have propane on the boat, there is no cockpit storage. (with propane, the port side has a deck box for propane storage near the aft end of the cockpit. The starboard box is for storage.) The deck layout is good except for the location of the jib sheet turning blocks. They attach to the toe rail. This doesn't allow for tight sheeting. A better place would be just aft of the jib winches if the jib is cut properly for that location. There is only room for a short traveler track there. In it's size and price range, it would be hard to find a better cuising boat. I would enjoy corresponding with other 9.2 C owners and others interested in this boat.

Pros:
Cons:

I just bought a 1977 S2. I'm located down in Portsmouth VA. The trip down here (not completed yet) was certainly filled with adventure, since we ran aground twice. To her credit (and not mine) there was no damage to her hull. I love the space. I'll be living aboard and am planning to convert the port settee into a refrigerator and storage. I also plan to add a storage box for propane aft. For now, she has an atomic 4 that runs well. I'm planning to starting a diesel fund to convert her over, but as long as the atomic is running well everything is fine. The one issue with her design that I did have is the jib winches....since they are installed at an angle, if you don't pull up when you are sheeting in they slide down around the base. Has anyone else found a solution to this problem? She is my first boat and I am looking forward to taking her out as often as possible, and I'd love to hear from others.

Pros: Very spacious for it's 30' length, sails well, solidly built.
Cons: Wish they were still being built!

Great boat with lots of room for two couples or family with kids. Also a very popular live aboard boat. Ours was mostly fresh water kept so in great condition. Fun to sail and pretty fast too!
Solidly built and lots of teak inside. Big nav station. Large aft stateroom offers privacy and good sized hanging closet. Lots of opening ports and large hatches for good ventilation. Spacious head with separate shower area. Good sized center cockpit....stays dry even in weather.
