Can Anyone Identify My Boat?

I have recently purchased a trailer sailer for day cruising lakes and rivers. It was sold to me as a Roberts 17 foot Custom. However a reputable Roberts dealer assures me it isn't one of theirs. Can anyone identify her for me. Thanks

I've seen a lot of boats, but I have never seen that one, or anything like it. Several things about it are very strange... the very deep forefoot and the rubrail -like things running the length of the hull. It almost looks like it was designed as a mini-offshore cruiser.

Is there a centerboard or swing keel? Is it made of fiberglass or something else? What's the displacement?

Hello Speedo

The keel has been replaced as the initial one had been effected by worm. There is no centre board though the rudder has a drop down section and is very heavy. She is made of fibreglass and is very solid. Sorry I don't know her displacement.
