Thanks for your feedback everyone.
I would be sailing on Lake Ontario.
I made a conditional offer on the S2, it just seemed like more complete package and a better cared for boat.
However upon second inspection I have discovered soft spots on both sides of the deck. The laminate is in great shape cosmetically, but the areas around chainplates are suspect soft.
As such, I am waiting for a boat surveyor to do a proper inspection.
From what I've read soft spots on deck could be a project all in itself, so I might have to walk away from this one. Would be a shame though as I think I really like the S2.
