I contacted the seller, I never heard about the designer J. Gutierrez nor the builder, Luis Morales. I can send you the ORC club certificate by PM if you want.
Thanks, yes I am confused over her big displacement. Perhaps the correct one is in the certificate?

32' Islander 32 MKII

"Oh... I think that's the mark II then... It must have been one of the first of them. Assuming it's a mark II (a modernish looking design with a fin keel and IOR style bow) then they are nice boats with a reputation for being good sailors particularly upwind. They were never really a racing boat, but they show some IOR influence -- a little bustle, a vestigial skeg, and the IOR water plane. They're very similar in build quality to the CALs and Erikson's of the time.", see https://forums.sailboatowners.com/threads/islander-32.107820/

 "Damn Near" came with lots of stuff. Gear, sails and stuff. I used everything I could to keep her original. Hung onto things to keep her history.

I have the vessels owner logs of those particular years. (80-85 ish)  It reads like Cook or Vancouver when they selected crew. Things like "very capable foredeck. "Has the weakness with the spirit"

If anyone has a story about her I'd really like to hear it. 
If you are asking about Damn Near from the Bay Area, there was series of like named boats owned by Bert Damner from the San Francisco YC. There are a lot of people on this site who could help fill in the blanks. Just need more specifics on the boat in question. I.e. length, year, rig/sail plan  etc.

I nearly bought one of those last time but decided it was a bit small and much too nice - I needed more of a project.

I actually prefer the 25 II from a purely esthetic POV.

i've got a 25-II; whats the difference to the 26 besides the fractional rig & sugar scoop? I've never managed to actually see a 26 in person and got the impression they were just a rig change.

26 has: Fractional rig, wider /extended transom/no skeg on the rudder/engine moved aft under companionway/2ft longer lwl/almost 600lbs heavier yet less sail area/beamier/less draft...

That’s what made the J-24 so successful.  It was as fast/faster than most 1/2 toners (30 ft) and could bury most 1/4 toners boat for boat.

I would have hoped so - since the J/24 rated in at the Half Ton level.  Which actually says that IOR worked pretty well.  Putting aside the LOA argument.  But if you want to go that route - a M24 will bury a J/24 several times over.
