S2 8.0 literature

I purchased a 1982 S2 8.0 26'. I would like to know if there is any literature out there on this boat. I've found the parts catalog and the maintainence manual for the sail drive along with the electrical, all I need is the owners manual or the likeness of it for the boat itself. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Greg,

Anything on the boat would be appretiated. I have the Saildrive Manual and Parts Catalog, I would only like the litterature on the boat itself. If you could send me a copy of the manual I would be very thankful. If you know of anyone who needs a Saildrive Parts Catalog for any of the saildrive used in the 8.0 let me know, I have them all on a file that can be sent E-mail.

I have sailed my 8.0 since 1977 when it was purchased new it is a keel/centerboard model and while it won't point a high as some keel boats it will sail very nicely on a reach or downwind. I have sailed the boat from Ft. walton Bch to mandeville La (lake Ponchartrain)and back.I sailed it on the lake for about 10 years the boat will balance nicely with the adjustable CB such that you can pick a point, set the trim and release the tiller and she will stay on that point for quite a while with out a hand on the tiller. I have sailed other boats as well from rangers, irwins, J boats, hunters, catalinas but I have to admit that the workmanship, brightwork, layout etc is better on the s2 than the other boats I have sailed on. (my opinion). while not totally unbiased it is at the very least honest. Be Safe

Windswimmer,
I need to refit the boat with new halyards and such. Right now I am questioning the integrity of the past owner. The outhaul is 3/8" line as is the reef and I think it should be 1/4". What did you have on yours on yours? How can I find out the origonal rigging specs?

Outhaul was 1/4 inch cunningham 3/8 inch any reefing line would be better 3/8 so as to get a better grip while reefing under way. IMO
