Question Linguistics 101

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.

Thanks for any help.

Are your ??? because you're not sure either or is the "i" pronounced and the "e" silent?

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.

I've always heard it pronounced with a long "A", just like the dreidel is pronounced with a long "A". Like, "Draydel......Saydelman".
