I wouldn't beat yourself up too much. Newer boats have longer waterlines and more modern, faster designs. There are two Jeaneau 36s. One has a PHRF rating of 93, the other 120, compared to the O'Day 35 at 144 (which is more than respectable). And those few seconds of speed may have cost him a hundred grand more than you spent.
