S2 7.0 vs Dehler Sprinta Sport

I have a chance to get either of these boats for same price including trailer and OB motor. Both in good shape. In terms of quality, safety, and performance...which is the better boat?

Re: S2 7.0 vs Dehler Sprinta Sport

Given my recent experience looking at several S2 7.9... smack the deck of the S2 around chainplates and mast step with a small wrench, work your way out/around the area, listen to the sound... if it sounds hollow RUN SCREAMING... if it makes a thud there might be hope.... if its solid, its probably worth its weight in gold.

I know of which 2 boats you speak but have not sailed on either, so I can't say if the S2 7.0 is built like the 7.9... I suppose all cored boats have these issues at some point... the Capri 25 had me spoiled to not have to deal with that.
