If it's a balsa cored hull model (as many S2's were) I'd be checking more closely for wet core than carrying the assumption that the blisters don't affect the hull of your particular boat. If the boat is non-cored you are OK but if it's cored I would suggest stripping it down, fairing the blisters (or re-glassing the strand mat with a layer of cloth) and then barrier coating with epoxy.
