Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


We developed the hull panel shapes for a stretched version of the Fisher Prospector some time ago and now we have completed the set of drawings. She has the same 5 planks per side, generous rocker to the bottom and tumblehome in her topsides that the original version has.

In 6mm ply, she weighs approximately 95lbs (43kg).
