Mystery boat
Hello all, I am hoping someone can help me to identify a boat I saw on my trip to Florida last week. I don't have any pictures because I didn't think of it at the time.

It is a double-ender, fiberglass, roughly 20', with simulated lapstrake hull. It has an unusually large cockpit, similar to the Chrysler 20, with a cuddy cabin. Very salty lines; the bow and stern are curved up. I think the rudder was separate -- not connected to the keel. It was shoal draft, too. I don't know if it had a swing keel.
I though it was a Nordica at the time, but it doesn't look anything like the pictures I've seen of the Nordica 20.
It's a puzzle, I know, but if anyone can piece it together with an answer, I'd appreciate it!

Holy mackerel, that might be it. I thought it had a little more freeboard, though it was out of the water, so I'm not sure. Also, I remember the cabin being a little smaller, with round portholes. Maybe they changed a few things over the years? I mean, how many different boats can there be that look like that?
Very cool; thanks for the reply!

Edit: hold the phone -- I just found this:
The Skipper cuddy! slightly shorter because it lacks the jutting prow thingy, and a smaller cabin. Yep, that's the one! Now the question is, how rare are these things?

Montgomerys also have that lapstrake look, but they're 15, 17 and 23 feet in length. This is the 17.
Flat transom though.
