Heh. The stripe is new. Currently on the boat. Talked to the owner. Said the spot in photo is from camera. I asked around a bit and no one recalls any major work being done to the keel. Just new gelcoat. The owner assured me that if I do buy it, I can haul it out and won't see the spot.

I also asked though about the engine having no oil pan. As the bilge access is right below the engine, it's difficult to see what's going on down there. This was the only major concern for me as there looked to be a bit of oil coating the sides of the bilge. Owner says the motor does leak a few drops every few months but that oil changes show no noticeable decrease in levels. He apparently put some oil absorbant in the bilge (which is that rag I thought I saw). Thoughts on this?

That's why oil absorbers, diapers etc. were invented - I've never yet seen a boat that didn't have SOME oil under the engine, even if it was only spilled when filling it.

You can tell at a glance if there's been a lot of oil down there or just some weeping, minor spillage etc.

Thanks. That alleviates my only concern with this boat other than "I still can't find liveaboard moorage anywhere that allows pets".

You've found SOME form of liveaboard moorage? Scratch that, you've found MOORAGE? Around HERE?

Re: S2 9.2c - for liveaboard - thoughts?

We used to charter one of these for the weekend a few years back before owning our own.
It was a fun boat to sail and comfortable with the aft berth.
One thing I remember well is that the holding tank was not much bigger than a dixie cup.
I don't know how much volume it actually holds but it was not much...at all.

That sure is a nice boat. I can't speak to the price vs. the condition, but if it's a fair deal, I'd go for it.

It really looks comfortable, well equipped and well maintained. It is aesthetically pleasing, someone else in the thread says it even sails well. Living aboard such a boat would be a real adventure.

Yea, finding moorage isn't all that difficult. Most of the Marina's still haven't discovered the Internet (which would make it much easier), but those who have all seem to have a few slips open. There's lots up the Fraser, always a couple in False Creek. All the liveaboard is up the creek which kinda sucks. I'd rather be in the middle of squamish than the Edge of Vancouver.

Re: S2 9.2c - for liveaboard - thoughts?

Somewhat old thread but I found this thread because I was looking up that exact boat actually. It's for sale again, seems to me it's the same owners, so they've been trying to sell it for 1-2 or more years?

I contacted them and asked about their price flexibility, since if the boat isn't selling it either has problems (which it doesn't seem to) or it's not priced properly for the market. they said "we've had it surveyed and our price is dead on".

I can see why they haven't managed to sell the boat in several years of trying...

Ask them for a copy of the survey.

Re: S2 9.2c - for liveaboard - thoughts?

Yup, they are dead set on the price. If it came with the slip it's in, it'd be well worth it, but the marina there has a rule about Vancouverites... They don't want an infestation. So you have to live in Squamish for x amount of time before you can get a slip.
