A search for a 9.5' Skimmar came up with "Skimmar Sea Dog-S".

The info I found said it was rigged like a catamaran. I'd search the heck out of it though, you should find some decent info somewhere online. I hope.

I'm interested in seeing what you come up with though. Please post any good links here.

Also, if you have any photos of the boat I'd like to see them.

There's a great little sailing primer out there called; Royce's Sailing Illustrated. I've had one since the 60's. I believe it is the most informative, comprehensive, broad spectrum book on sailing ever compiled. I have no affiliation w/ author or publisher, I just think it's a great book to learn about sailing from.
