Cruising in an S2 9.2?

I'm looking for a boat to cruise the coast of Maine, Canadian Maritimes, and then one day a little further. Generally, I have only really considered modified full keeled designs, but the quality of workmanship, headroom, and the price, keeps luring me to S2's when they cross my path.

Personally, I don't think they are very pretty, but I've read a few places that she is a true blue water cruiser. Is this true?

Two big things I see:

A lack of reserve buoyancy in the bow
A large cockpit with no real bridge deck to stop any down-flow when you're pooped.

Are these really legitimate cruisers?

Afraid of grounding a fin keel on granite.
