New Member and Sailboat Owner
Greetings All,

My dad and I have just purchased a 1985 S2 9.2C based in Merritt Island, FL. I'm fairly new to sailing, but my dad used to sail quite a bit. I have always dreamed about having a sailboat, but we weren't actively looking for one. The boat kinda fell into our lap.

It hasn't been used in a few years and needs a lot of elbow grease to get it looking good. But we're on our way to getting it back to its former glory.

So anyway, I just wanted to say hi!

Just learned from your other post that you bought an S2. Congratulations on that. I bought a 1982 S2 8.5 10 years ago and I'm still in love. They made great boats and I'm sure you'll enjoy her. Feel free to get in touch online or off if any of us can be of help. I've learned a tremendous amount on these boards, you will too.

Friend of mine in Honolulu had a S2 9.2C way back before I got Lealea. My first experience sailing in Hawaii was on that boat, Keli Loke was her name. Drank a lot of beer in her cockpit :)

I was looking for a boat of my own and asked him why he chose that particular boat, thinking to get some insight. "My ex-wife liked the interior" was his answer :confused:
