Hey, just recently bought an S2 9.2a, 30', and am stumped. It's my first boat, and I'm having to figure out a lot of things, including the rigging, which was not set up very well for any kind of perfomance (this is mainly a cruiser).
Right now what's bugging me is the mainsheet: it's way too short! I get to less than 45 degrees, more like 40. So a broad reach is tough, and wing to wing impossible. Boat came with a 6:1 sheet block, and I have the boom vang fairly tight.
It's a puzzle to me that this didn't bother the previous owner, as he said. Drivin me nuts. Any ideas as to how this happens? Should I just get the new sheet?
