Arrluuk is a very accurate replica of the Bounty design by L. Francis Herreshoff.  Built by Legendary Yachts in Washington state, USA.  Launched about 2000.

Herreshoff Boats For Sale / Re: Herreshoff 15 for sale?

Ha - I think this is HMM's old work skiff!  A donation from some years ago.  Doesn't exactly qualify it as being built in Bristol...

I wasn't at the protest hearing so prefer not to speculate.   Adam L

We were on the same starting line when the collision happened.  It happened maybe 150ft to leward of us.  Gut wrenching sound.  The Swan spun Winnie 360 degrees.   We sailed on through the line and watched them head for the harbor channel.  Only realized they went down later when the CG announced a hazard to navigation of a sunken vessel in the channel. 

Great to see they raised her with crane and barge in what looks like mainly intact condition (minus the whole in the bow).  Heard from the captain she will be completely repaired and sail again.

I don't know about a Quisset connection, but I do know of a few Islanders scattered about the US.

They do look old, but not look like any Herreshoff models I have seen.  In my experience, most, if not all, of the models that came from the Herreshoff's were carefully labeled with writing on the back side.  Even the very early models in the collection.  -A

That is SQUAW, as found a little over a year ago, on the cover and PAPOOSE, mid-restoration, on the inside.  They are both in containers heading south at the moment for a little Caribbean racing action.  Fantastic transformation for both boats!
