Creekmore John, I didn't see the picture of "Magic" in the travel lift until just now. The view of the hull below the water line looks a lot like "Georgia."

In the picture of "Magic" under sail, I think I see only one dorade vent. If it were on my boat, it would ventilate the head.

I also see a jack stay. Is your boat cutter rigged? I ask because the boom on "Georgia" use to extend over the cockpit with the main sheet trimmed with a winch on the after deck. I am told they took about 6 feet off the boom. Maybe this was done when the staysail was removed. Taking the staysail off without shortening the boom would have created a tremendous weather helm. Can you comment about whether the Creekmore 36s were cutter rigged?
