  • self steering setup, enables steering from anywhere on the boat, not a dependable autopilot system but great if you're solo and have to move around PVC frame for winter storage, I use a 20' X 30' tarp with it


  • This has been a most enjoyable boat to own, fast to sail and plenty of space to accommodate our cursing interests. With the lift keel and hinged rudder you can brave the skinny waters of a quiet anchorage at night and sail in 20+ knots of wind the next day. S2 did a great job with these boats.
