22 Year owner of S2 9.2C with lots of opinions/maintenance experience

Folks. It took me seven years to do it, but I finally found out where that leak in the v-birth (that kept filling the forward bilge) came from. Turns out the anchor locker is a pre-fab unit glassed into the bow. It had seperated from the hull where the drain holes for the anchor locker are. So, . . . when the anchor locker was wet it ended up funneling the water into the v-birth area. Took out the decorative board at the foot of the v-birth and filled the void between the locker and hull with 5200. Voila! The forward bilge has been dry ever since. Perhaps a better fix would have been to construct a threaded tube fitting to go through each drain hole and then bed that in 5200. That, however, is beyond my mechanical abilities. Any questions about S2 9.2Cs? I will be pleased to share my experiences! Love the boat, although there are tradeoffs, . . as with any vessel.
