S2 9.2A

It will be interesting to see what others say, but in general I suspect you''ll hear that the S2, while a decent production coastal cruiser in its day, is not cut out for offshore work. The 9.2 is the cruising version of the 9.1, with a detuned rig, shorter keel, and wheel steering. I believe the 9.1 was considered the purer version and performed quite a bit better. In either case, however, they are strictly in-shore boats, not ocean crossers.
