Re: Schock 25 sailboat
Have you actually seen the boat? 1962 is a LONG time ago. It could be REALLY tired. The photograph is obviously old if the ad says it needs work to be sailable. You may need to work for a long time to get it off the trailer and into the water. Does it need new sails too? What is the setup for a slip or mooring? Would a heavy (1000kg) daysailer like this need a motor to get in and out of your harbor? It looks a lot like a big Ensign. (Not a fast boat, but sturdy, commodious and enjoyable.) It weighs as much as a Soling.(Quite a fast boat, but 2’ longer.) The ballast/displacement ratio so close to 50% would indicate a stiff boat in any case. Schock has a reputation for quick boats, but they were not all designed by the same people, so this one...? Good luck finding someone who’s sailed them to tell you more.
