S2 7.9 Class Association
Sold. S2-7.9 Hull No. 160, Lightly used Grand Slam, inboard (BMW D7) with trailer. This boat has not been in the water for over twelve years (stored inside at Betsie Bay Marina). I brought her home this spring (Highland MI) after having the trailer overhauled, new tires, brakes, master cylinder, seals, bearings, and chains. The bottom is VC-17 over VC-TAR. The hull is Regatta Blue Interthane Plus. This boat has always sailed in the Great Lakes. I did one year in Erie, three years in St Clair (where I learned I'm not a racer), then hauled it to DeTour Michigan to do the North Channel. I then took her to Betsie Bay where I became a salmon fisherman until Lake Michigan went shallow and I put her inside. In the meanwhile I bought a trawler which has kept me busier than I need to be. She has all the original equipment (never lost a spinnaker sheet!) plus: optional opening ports, stern rail, saloon table, radio, depth sounder/fishfinder/anchor alarm, autohelm, daggerboard ratio upgrade, aluminum billet rudder cheeks, cushion fiddles laminated with stainless steel and drilled to fit as back-up tiller, radar reflector, swim ladder, mast hoist crutch, etc. I will sell this near concours 7.9 for $16,000. Sold 5-10-13
S2 Rudder Repair When I owned ser#46, I repaired, refinished, and in the process, upgraded the rudder to resist wear. I'm about to start the same process with several rudders at once. If you would like to have a better appearing and functioning rudder in time for the coming season, and live within range of the Twin Cities, email or call me for a quote.
