Pros:
Cons:

Light displacement, IOR, Ron Holland design. This boat weights approx. 7K lbs.. This is light when compared to other boats of this size built in the early 80's. The boat has a fin keel, 4'-8" draft (shoal draft), full sloop powerful rig. Auxilary power is provided via an 11hp Universal diesel. I have only had this boat about 8 months and have just started preparing the boat for what it was meant for, racing. I have sailed this boat in a few small local regattas and have managed to place no worse than fourth place. I am really impressed at it's neutral helm and at the ease it reaches hull speed under sail. Part of the racing preperation has been a new bottom, that was just completed. I will test sail the new bottom, next weekend. I have also made some minor rigging adjustments.

Pros: Well built, easy to sail, 6'+ headroom main cabin.
Cons: Engine power is marginal

Start with engine power - std was Univ 5411 - 11hp; adequate most of the time unless you need to motor against a hi-wind, hi-current (like SF Bay), then need 4-5 more hp. At last haul-out (2005) still no blisters and no blisters on 2 other boats that I looked at purchasing. If in salt water, original keel bolts were mild-steel and may need to be replaced, fresh water boats don't seem to have problem. Just enough wood in cabin interior to look nice without doing lots of maintenance. Fast - fun to sail, well mannered boat, easy to balance helm with sail adjustments.

Pros: Very responsive with neutral helm. Rigged for singlehanding. Interior is comfortable for overnighting. Long rudder design helps to prevent broaching, and allows for turning on a dime. Good performer and fun to sail.
Cons: Stern of boat difficult or impossible to reach through quarter birth or lazerette. Vacuum formed liner has cracked in a couple spots. Bilge is very shallow so bilge water that is shallow sloshes around unless you sponge it out. Bilge pump will not trigge

In 1980 Cal licenced manufacturing rights for a "New and exciting line of Cal Meter Boats" from Jeanneau called the "RUSH" It was marketed throughout Europe as a 31ft performance boat based on Ron Holland's success in 1/2 ton designs. There were a total of 4 Jeanneau version made:
"RUSH" ;"RUSH GTE" (deep keel); "RUSH REGETTE" with a lead keel:
"RUSH ROYAL" .
In Brazil Mariner built more than 200 boats classified as a high performance cruising sail boat. All that I could find was the 5.7ft draft version. In the USA, I have found 3 versions 4'7", 5"7" and the 5'7"keel with foamed windows to add an additional 300 lbs of lead if desired. The 9.2R has the 2' taller mast and solid rod rigging. Most were mast head rigged tapered Kenyon masts. Baby stay can be found with block and tackle for mast bend and to move the stay out of the way when jibing the chute.
#19 Silver Swan was repowered with a 2GM20 Yanmar which is about right. Easy starting and good fuel economony. It is the 4'7" shoal keel cruiser version. Don't let the cruiser version fool you, I still give time to a J28 and a C&C35.
For repair projects and improvements refer to the 9.2 web site. If you have a project to add just send me an Email.
