Re: S2 9.2c - for liveaboard - thoughts?
That is a really nice example, and they do look like they would make a nice liveaboard. Not the best looking boat, but they are known for being quite strong. The 11.0 was on the 20 affordable boats to take you anywhere, though he favored the aft cockpit, but the center sure seems to have nice livable space.
I am sure it came with a holding tank originally as it was the law by then, likely under the seat in the sit tub. The shower is one of the real benefits of that layout, as the aft cockpit has a more traditional head, without the separate shower. While that one appears to be very clean, I do think the price is quite high and you should be able to find the 11.0 for that price. Also since it has original upholstery it does not look like there has been much upgrading, except for the improperly installed head and carpet. Might not be too bad if it has very recent rigging and sails.
What's wrong with the head? Just the fact that it's piped outboard?
The rigging/sails looked very good, but again, I know very little. Need to take someone who knows these things with me next time.
