Re: S2 7.9
Racers often push their boats to the limit, and with small boats under spinnaker, the limits can include sinking them. For example, a fairly common occurrence with racing J24s.
I do think the fact that risky sailing can sink the boat does not conflict with the well-stated advice regarding their desirability and usefulness for the OP. Remember he wants a trailerable boat, and pretty much anything trailerable, probably is sinkable. The 6.9 offers the OP the best of that class, but it is still a member of the class, unless you chase one of the keel versions, which becomes not trailerable.
Sailing like life is full of tradeoffs.
