    S2 27

    Thanks for the info. I will get a suvey and alert surveyor to leak prown areas. I've done re-core on my F3; had a genoa turning block pull through the deck. Nothing like 'glassing core in a haz mat suit, goggles, and gloves in 100F heat in FLA. WEST took about 3 hrs to harden, and I did it bottom up. It built character.

    Same here, A/C will let us cruise a bit more June-September.

    It's a core deck and hull. Another forum advised check chainplates for leaks, and I will bring small hammer for a random taping of deck and hull where fittings are

    Thanks. I would like the 7.9, but wifey likes this S2 27 because: 6' headroom 4'9" draft It has factory installed A/C It's a nice boat, just about everything rebuilt/replaced 2015 to present. Pics show very clean inside and out. Of course, a survey is in order, and will add asym and folding prop. Looks like it rates 186 PHRF, but I'm not sure.

    Well, sold my Hinterhoeller F3, and looking to down size. Anybody have knowledge/experience owning/crewing on an S2 27? I'm looking at a 1985 S2 27 deep draft in Pensacola. Read about it and looked at brochure online. Will do some racing, but mostly weekend cruising until retired. Thanks for the help.

    Got the Sailtec for $500 on Ebay. Life is good

    Looks like a good system, but I don't have an open transom. If I run lines to my secondaries, cuts off cockpit space, especially for helmsman

    I'd like to see pics of your backstay setup, if you don't mind.

    My panel was right by main trimmer. If Sailtec falls through, will be seriously looking at setup that Carcrash mentions. I have 2 secondary Lewmar ST that were used for runners. Hydraulics are sooooo 80's (1982 F3)

    Already called them. They are glad to help rebuild

    Will do. Probably get a rebuild kit (if they exist) for new seals, etc

    Bid on Ebay on a Sailtec 10LI today. May have to extend handle 2' to reach from helm, but it fits. Panel opening will be covered. Hope this works.

    Thanks for the replys. Navtec wants $3950 for a new panel. FL Hydraulics & Rigging looked at the panel: one of the previous owners tried to remove the gauge with vise grips, cracked the dial, then it appears that PO tried to remove by wedging a screwdriver between panel and gauge, and the final blow was bolts for pump and fittings are seized. They'll sell me an integral unit that was rebuilt, just got to get them measurements. Wichard looks like a good alternative, checking with Sailtec, and I found a pic of the backstay system on a Ben 36.7 that I like the concept, but I don't have open transom. Trying not to spend $$$$, so the rebuilt may work if they're looking to get rid of it (maybe $1,000, and some sobbing). Calling MaurPro in St Pete tomorrow about the 36.7 set up. They've done some work with me. I know reinforcing will be necessary, hoping to use slotted toe rail if I can for a block and cam cleat setup. Break Out Another Thousand several times over.
