Micks...I would say they are on a par with Catalinas of their era in terms of build quality. Suitable for Bahamas & thorny path. Maybe Bermuda with the right outfitting and crew.

Camaraderie,

What do you think about sailing an S2 from FL to St.john? (never made a trip like that, but that would be the one I'd want to!)

Bill...the 9.2 you aspire to is a bit small if you are looking to do that in blue water rather than the thorny path. It is well enough constructed but tender and I don't like a spade rudder in open water either but that is a personal preference. Even the thorny path can get dicey and the tankage for fuel and water is not great for the windward motoring you'll need to do on that route. You would need to be especially SURE of the condition of the engine on that route as there is little in the way of help between the Bahamas and Puerto Rico.
The 9.2 would be fine in the Bahamas...but I would prefer the 11 if I were going to head to the Caribe. Not saying you can't do it in a 9.2 but you would be a braver man than I!! (G)
