Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


Our 15' 8" Fisher Prospector is our most popular canoe design (go to Open Canoes 15'-17'). This new version has been requested by a client who wanted a similar canoe, slightly shorter and with 7 planks per side rather than the 5 of the original design. The 15' Fisher Prospector has the same beam as her bigger sister and is still a high capacity canoe suitable for 2 to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. The plans come with the same sail, spar, rudder and leeboard details used on the 15'8" version.
