S-2 Manual for 1986 7.9

We have a 1986 7.9 S-2 sloop.
We bought as a demostrator, and never got a manual
By the time I gave up on the dealer and wrote the S-2 people they had gone out of business.
If someone has a boat and engine manual that they would be willing to copy for me I would be glad to send you a check for the expense
Thanks

saildrive manual

I don't have your manual, but if it makes any difference, my 7.3 manual is more of a novelty than it is useful. However, I DO have a OMC Saildrive manual that could be VERY useful if you have a saildrive. I suppose I could copy it if you need it. Parts are rare, and I have even had to fabricate my own gaskets, but the saildrive performs awesome when running good. If you have a saildrive, I can help.

S2 Yachts is Still VERY much in Business, However:

they only make stink pots (Tiara Yachts). Your best bet for information is the S2 7.9 association at:

They are having their International Championships in August at Holland, MI this year.

Of course, another 'expert' opinion about the S2. How enlightening! I guess I should swab the bilge with some Catalina scum and maybe she'll be as fresh as an island rain in the morning. Maybe some J-boat barnacles could help scrub the stink out. Really now.

In 1987 S2 (aka,) Tierra Yachts stoped production of the sailing fleets. Sail drives were not used since 1983, this might be the stink pots as was referred. If you use the internet (as the above website suggests,) you should find info on your engine and boat from someone, whatever it is, it just takes patience. Ignore the personal unfaverable opinions of anyone dogging anothers opinion. Were here to help everyone! This is this why this website is here.

I believe the reference to the term stink pot is to any vessel that is not sail driven, it is used frequently in this area to any vessel that has an engine as its primary power, here there is no derogatory meaning but do agree that
We're here to help each other. Later

Thank you Greg.
I learned something new tonight about stink pots. I appretiate the information, and also to correct my spelling, that would be Tiara Yachts and not Tierra Yachts.

Can you give any advice to someone whose OMC saildrive on a 8.0 S2 is inhaling water through the exhaust? She starrted, ran and in less than a minute filled the lower cylinder with water. It was cleaned out, a compression test done (it was acceptable according to the mechanic) and then it filled with water again as it was cranked. I hate to go the outboard route but that seems to be the least of all the evils. If you have any suggestions you can e-mail me directly at chamann@cecomet.net

Tiara Yachts

...and Pursuit (fishing) Boats. BTW these guys are very helpful if you want to contact them--they sold me a "new" set of rudder bushings for my 7.3 the other day
