Nice.... is that an S2? If so, I'm an admirer. I was amazed that they could put a center cockpit and an aft cabin in a boat that can still squeeze into a 30ft slip.

Re: Shameless plug

I've always loved the S2 CC's. I don't remember them having the portlights on the topsides though maybe I just wasn't paying enough attention.

I'm more peeved that you came to NJ and didn't reach out to any of us to let us know you'd be in the area! Would love to have met you in person!

Re: Shameless plug

LOL jimgo. No need to be peeved. i was never in NJ. That's where this story starts to get interesting. I didn't actually see the boat until it arrived in our slip. The portlights were an option on later boats. We are the third owners, and have all of the records going back to the purchase in 1979. Purchase price, brand new, in 1979? Under $15K.

Med, yes it is an S2 8.0C. The shortest walk-thru center cockpit ever built, and a proud product of the 70s Converse All-Star Hightop school of naval Architecture. The boat looks like it should lace up.

But, roomy? It is amazing.

Re: Shameless plug

I've been in the 9.2C's, haven't been in the 8's. But I was amazed by how much room the 9.2's have, and I'm sure compared to most 23-25's, she'll seem HUGE. Congrats on the purchase and good luck with her!

I like the S-2 9.2c also. Not a bad sailer and a great live aboard, IIRC. They certainly seem huge compared to my Vega.

Before I got Lealea I used to day sail on Mamala Bay with a guy at work who owned one. One night he brought a babe down to the boat to show her his oars and kicked over a battery charger. The fire gutted the boat and was purchased from the insurance company by another friend of ours for $1. He rebuilt the interior and lived aboard in the Ala Wai for many years after.

I do not know how it would be off shore though. Seems like a lot of windage for it's length.

Re: Shameless plug

Vega, have you seen the 11c's? That seems like just about the ideal boat.

I had the same thought. then i looked at the Nina and the Pinta and the Beagle and this 8.0C which got down to Tortola and back on her own. That suits my needs. I have no interest in circumnavigation or transats or transpacs. Down the coast, maybe to Bermuda, definitely to the bahamas and the BVI and through the Great Lakes? She works for us.
