Want to crew Harvest Moon Regatta

ASA 101, 103, and 104 certified. Not much on-the-water experience, but I listen and follow directions. Can crew both there and back.

How to secure steaming light to mast with halyards inside mast.

I ran into a problem while rewiring the mast on my S2 8.0b. The halyards run inside the mast. I have to replace the steaming light. I had planned on drilling some holes and tapping out some...

Ok well through further review, I think I found out what the "blisters" are. The boat had a receipt for a blister job 10 years ago, at a cost of $4,000. So I imagine it was pretty severe. The...

*shrug* I guess both my depth finder and my drop line were inaccurate to the same degree. I dropped it in calm water so I don't think current would have caused a 1.5 foot discrepancy in my weighted...

Oh I meant to mention, I think those open spots came after I scraped off the barnacles. Almost like the barnacles had attached themselves to the paint so strong that they peeled the paint off with...

Just got my boat on hard. What kind of hull work do I need to do? Pics.

This is my first boat, just started sailing last month. So all of this is very foreign to me.

I had planned on sanding it down to the gel coat, putting an epoxy barrier, then paint. The owner of...

Ok I think I'm gonna try to hoist myself up tomorrow and take a closer look. The boat came with a harness for doing that. On the S2 8.0 though, the halyard goes through the mast, making it a 2...

It looks like they are metal, I've seen the plastic spreader boots in the West Marine catalog and I don't think that's what these are.

Spread repair while boat is in water.

I just got a 26' S2 and one of the things that needs work is the spreaders. It looks like there are some little bulbs at the ends of the spreaders that guide the shroud around the spreader. The...

Thanks. I know I have a lot to learn. I didn't realize how little I knew until I actually got this boat and started trying to sail it though. Now I know better and I definitely wouldn't do things...

I can not find a spool of wire anywhere. The only thing under the companionway steps is the inboard. The thing in the cockpit that I thought was a throttle for the inboard was in fact a throttle...

Is it a little silver cap looking thing with a hole in it to put a lever/bar or something? I thought that was the throttle for the inboard. I never messed around with it because the inboard doesn't...

I wish I could post links, there are a few S2 8.0's out there on some of the used sailboat sites that advertise as "shoal draft 2.5 ft, w/ centerboard down 6.1 ft" or something along those lines.

I've read it on a depth finder and then dropped a weighted line down to double-check. The depth finder was pretty accurate.

Heh the owner told me he thought it was 4.5' draft, so that's not much help. I don't have any good pictures of the entire boat yet, I'll upload them when I can.

Hi, I'm new to sailing and I'm confused about something and don't want to have to take my boat out of the water to figure it out.

I just bought an 26' S2 and sailed it from Kemah, TX to Lake...
