    Searching for a new to me interim boat <30ft.

    might look at an S2 9.2C with the aft cabin, not the prettiest boat, but sails decent and has the most room you will get in 30 feet. If you could go to 32' O'day made a 32' with a walk over aft cabin with better sailing and headroom.

    Cat Tails?

    IMHO the best tells are located in the pocket of your sail, usually about 1/3 of the width at the foot, this gives you wind direction in the pocket of your sail. telling back or up and back is good, straight up or limp and you are sheeted in to much. Most Hobies tells are set up this way...

    Looking at an old S2 9.2c need assistance in sourcing parts etc.

    Mark, The fellow who is selling the boat is on S2 FB and posted it for sale Nov 28th there. His last activity on the page was 2 days ago so he is still active - Good to know, I will be traveling back up to get a better look at the boat in the next couple of weeks. I've not sailed on one...

    well, the price is really really low and I like the design (so does my wife) so this may be the one. it obviously needs a bottom job, it looks like it has some blistering and so I need to get back down to the fiberglass and fix it correctly. I do most all the work myself and have restored...

    s2 9.2 questions

    Good to know, I've emailed Tiara Yachts to see if they can get me hull loft dimensions so I can build a cradle or trailer. I will check out Beckson to see if they still offer something similar to what is in the boat, some of the ports have broken hinges and are just hanging on by the closing...

    s2 9.2 questions

    I'm looking at a 1983 S2 9.2c that has been largely negleted. Are there any original parts available for these like port holes/lights, rigging, etc?

    Alternator assembly ... or, when curiosity gets the better of me

    I use a piece of thread tie it around the holder to keep the brush in and then when you slip in the commutator, just snip the thread or string. bingo!

    Also, If anyone has the hull design, I'm probably going to need that to set up the trailer... Also, does the soul come up? they have carpet over and I'm sure I need to check the mast step and all the floor as it's soft in a couple of spots. Thanks again!

    Hello, I'm Mark and I'm looking at picking up a 1983? S2 9.2c that is in pretty rough shape. No sails, some leaks, been on the hard two+ years and has not been run in that time. It's a 3hr drive from where it needs to be (Grand Lake) I'm in Edmond, OK and I would need the following to make...

    Help with Coronado 23-2 parts

    yes, the body looks the correct length (maybe a little long but not bad) but it is the 1/4-28 thread pitch that is missing. I just have 1/8" 1x19 wires with 1/4-28 threads... So, the 1/2-20 will not work for me.. It's just funny, I know that they made 400+ of my hull and I doubt that the...

    Help with Coronado 23-2 parts

    Yea, sorry that does not look like the correct turnbuckle or material, the forged silicon bronze may be supperior for resistance to galling, but this looks like the new standard body length of 4.5" which will not work for me unless I have all new shrouds made and since they are in great...
