I just found your threads and thought I'd post: I have owned S2 27 no. 81 for about two years now. Not much to add to the cabin top traveller discussion, except that mine also has the Lewmar cabin top arrangement. I have changed out the cam cleats, as it was already set up with control lines when I purchased the boat. If there is an owners forum dedicated to the S2 27 somewhere, I'd be interested in joining. Thanks.

Glad to see another S2 27 owner! This thread seems to be about the closest thing to a group I've found. I purchased hull #50 last summer. Found some soggy core in the cabintop, so the new traveller install will coincide with that repair as soon as possible. Where do you sail?

Welcome. I have hull #80, build year 1987. I have a question for you. Does your boat have a compression post in the salon? All the literature I've read states that 27s have keel stepped masts, which I am sure the pre-'87 models do. Mine doesn't, however, so I am interested in hearing about your mast configuration.

Scuppers - are you stating that your 27 does not have a compression post - ie, you have a deck stepped mast with a tabernacle? wow - that sounds very strange? are u sure you have an S2 27 Performance Cruiser? Maybe someone modified the design?

Bob - a while back I mentioned forming a class assoc, etc. but with so few boat owners, and spread thin geographically, it wasn't financially feasible.

next best thing would be a yahoo newsgroup - since we could control access and share information and documents in private. the newsgroup would be easy to set up.

if more are interested pls PM me and I'll set up the group in the next few weeks.

Sorry about my lack of clarity! My boat does have a compression post, to which the dining table attaches in the salon. The mast is deck stepped with a mast shoe on the deck plate. It all appears to be original. Since the '85s and '86s are keel stepped, I was simply wondering if S2 changed the design for the '87s. Check out the second and fourth pictures down on the following website, which had hull #85 for sale. The setup looks just like my boat.

(BTW, I am 100% certain that my boat is an S2 27 Performance Cruiser -- some 8.0B owners seem to think they have 27s)

When I get a chance, I'll snap some pics and post them on the new Yahoo site. Thanks for setting that up!

S2 27

I just found the forum don't know if you still use it. I have an 1986 S2 27 and have owned it for 11 years. I love the boat its been a great boat for the family and I have done a bit of racing as well. Mine is the cruiser version which I have somewhat changed so I could better race. I think I'm either 44 or 72 cannot remember.

Hello Dreamteam,

I do still use this forum, just not too regularly. I have been trying to tune my rig a bit better for racing. Have been experimenting with shroud tension. What type of keel do you have? Mine is the shoul keel. Winter is about to bite us here in MI. I plan to pull the mast on Sunday and pull it out of the water on Monday. Glad you're on the forum. Stay in touch.

I have sailed mostly on a Lake in GA but this last year I move to a lake in SC. I have the standard keel.
