While we're waiting for Razor to take a pic, here is one to tide us all over. S2 8.0 Center Cockpit. The broker described it as "beautiful"

"The broker described it as beautiful"?

Please don't tell me you went to look at it! ;)
If I had looked at it, I'd have posted the pic in the Cool boats thread. :D
Ha, that's funny! ... Social suicide!!
Reminds me of the joke that the only thing that "goes" with Crocs footwear is "social ostracism".

I sailed an S2 9.2 A once, wasn't awful, but those small CC boats they made sure have a 'look' don't they ? and not a good one.

Someone actually put pen to paper and said "yea, that’ll look good"

That worries me.

Separated at birth?

Idiosyncratic, maybe. Anything that has gone around the world under sail can't be bone ugly. It is very much an artifact of a particular design phase that to us looks a little odd.

I think it has sort of late '50's early '60's kind of panache in a very tacky way. I can see a little counter below with a grey formica top. There are little red and yellow boomerangs in the formica. Remember those?

I sailed on one too...well, I was on one on the dock really but it was a tippy canoe with good reason. Stubby keel and a second floor. Sorta like the Buccaneer footballs. Too bad really as S2/Tiara build quality product. Too bad about an abortion of a design.

With black and white square floor tiles and three china flying ducks on the bulkhead. It's all coming back guys... and even now it's still VERY, very cool. :blink:
