Incorrect - the Schock 36 was designed well after the introduction of IOR IIIa, indeed, after many of the multitude of "adjustments" made to IIIa. It was not an early pintail design. It was also intended as somewhat of a one design class so the nods to IOR were less than extreme for the time. FYI, pretty well any IOR boat with a fractional rig is not "early". The enormous genoa / ribbon main rig was the standard for virtually all early IOR boats. I'm not certain, but since it was released in 1980 it may have incorporated some or all the lessons learned from the '79 Fastnet disaster. Perhaps W.D.Schock can weigh in on this.
From reading your list of "negative factors" can I assume you aren't in the market for a restored classic car or a reno'd house either?
In this market, and at this time of year, expecting a broker to move a boat within 90 days strikes me as a bit harsh as well.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken, opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
