I know there is (supposedly) no such thing as a dumb question but this one may be the first. . .
I am interested in a Seidelmann 295 and would like to know the proper pronunciation of the boat. Is it pronounced "Seedelmann" or Sidelmann"? Thought the seller may take me a little more seriously if I knew how to call the boat by her proper name.
About 18 years ago, I knew a guy who had one, and he pronounced it "Sydelman", with a long "i". He was (is) a very knowledgable, long-time sailor. I have never heard anyone pronounce the name in an alternate fashion.
