S2 36 foot 1980 Help

I recently bought a 1980 36'' S2 (11 meter), and have been happy with it. For the most part, it''s really well built, and S2 put in the effort to do it right, except for a few things that are really poor - like really cheap plastic portlights and 1/8" lexan for some realtively large windows. This mixture of good and bad is baffling. Because my boat was well maintained and had almost all the extra "stuff" I was looking for, I paid more than the going rate for these boats, but it didn''t take much math to figure out that I was coming out way ahead. Boat stuff is really expensive - any savings in the initial purchase price will quickly disappear into the pockets of Sailnet, West Marine.... Best to do some of your own math, and DON''T guess or generalize your "estimates" will probably be way off.
