1982 S2 7.3

I found a 1982 S2 7.3 in my state, in my price range, which is a feat in itself.... I am looking for some information from folks as to their opinions of the boat. It has an inboard and SailDrive. From some of the information I have been able to find on the web, they have balsa cord decks so I am sure I will need to check for soft spots and the like. Also, as I am just starting to look at this boat, brutally honest opinions will not hurt my feelings. Thanks in advance.

What kind of saildrive does it have? If it has an OMC saildrive—you may be heading for trouble you'd rather avoid, as these were very problematic. I'd recommend you read the Boat Inspection Trip Tips thread I started, as it will help you determine whether this boat is even worth looking at further.

If you inspect the boat and then decide to go forward, I would recommend getting the boat surveyed, as well as surveys of the engine and rigging unless you are comfortable and knowledgeable enough to feel you can do a proper job of it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks for the info SD I was planning on having a survey if I do move forward on this and looking at it myself too. So from one of the pictures they show the saildrive and it is stamped OMC SailDrive. So what kinds of problems did these have and what am I looking at to fix/replace the unit if necessary?
