Can someone ID this boat?

We came across this hard chined, flat bottomed, canoe sterned, gaff rigged boat in Rockland, ME this summer and could not figure out what it is:



Note the twin outboards :



Here's her bowsprit in case this helps :



Can anyone tell me what she is even though my phone took some pretty crappy pictures?

Obviously this boat was meant to sail really flat, but the hard chine is c-razy! She must get pretty squirrely with some heel...

That is what I would call a "sharpie" style, but the canoe/double ended stern is throwing me for a loop. A "Dory"? or a combo of the two.

Back east there are so many variables of the two.

That is my best SWAG, and probably wrong!

She appears to be some sort of "skipjack" design, but don't know the builder....

Cool design for an inland boat but not necesarily an ocean going one.

Appears the swing keel is not down all the way.

Keel up can get into skinny water.

The twin outboards would make for nice manuevering under power for docking and all.

Gaff rigged, 2 seperate cabins, very cool I think!!!

She's a Reuel Parker design for sure, a sharpie schooner based on an old west coast design. Check his website.

The MIC code for the boat's HIN is SJI.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Very cool, indeed. We thought so, too doggie.

The Sharpie thread is what brought this boat back to the forefront of my foggy little brain. Similar, but not the same.

WanderingStar, I did check out the Reuel Parker page. I wasn't familiar with him and there's some really nice designs there. Grace certainly looks like it should be one of his, but I couldn't find it on that page. The Terrapin looks really close, but the plum bow and squared off transom aren't quite right.

Either way, I bet she's real pretty in the water. I'd love to see how it handled under sail.

Ahh, right.

How'd you figure that out, Detective?

according to the MIC database:

MIC Company Address City State
SJI SEOLADIAR 110 W MADISON OAK PARK IL

Seoladiar is one of the few combinations of letters known to man that only return one website when googled.

Seoladair means sailor, but neither seem to be a boat manufacturer...
