S2 9.2A questions
Hi, I probably could've asked in the 9.2 center cockpit discussion, but am also kind of wondering whether there are fellow 9.2A owners out there.
I just bought mine, and am very excited, of course. Counting the days til May when I'll sail her from Plymouth, MA to Providence, where we'llhave a mooring near our house.
I've heard pretty consistent reports of the S2 being tender, the need to reef early, etc. Is this to the point where it's frustrating? Any tips on keeping the boat flat when wind picks up (besides obvious sail trim and reefing I mean)?
Also, I do like the fabric in the cabin, but it does look a little dark in places. May be mold. Any advice for getting that out and cleaning?
I'm not looking to do very extensive cruises. More like Providence (Cranston) to Newport, Block, The Vineyard, Nantucket. But am curious how the boat could handle longer cruises.
Thanks for any ideas!
