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

Biosci777 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?

Would it be this one?

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!
