OrangeOwl is on a distinguished road
So, here is a wierd situation; check out the S2 9.1 on yachtworld (YW# 22624-1744489) Turns out the driving reason it is approx $10k under normal asking price is that they have turned a fin keel into a shoal draft by cutting of about a foot and adding a bulb. It is reported to be a very clean job and looks ok in the pictures. My initial reaction (and 2nd, 3rd, etc.) is to run away butt.....

This boat is potentially a very good deal and the S2 has a bit more livable cockpit and interior than a J30. I'm looking at day sailing/weekending withthe wife and 2 kids, plus the random club race with some buds. I'm wondering if I should talk myself into a big drive to look it over in person.
