Wooden Ships Comments on this Selway Fisher gaff rigged dinghy

Large volume and stable hull built from plywood for a low maintenance and light weight hull. She weighs only 180lbs (81kg) so is an easy boat to launch, retrieve and move around.
Stored ashore in a garage when not in use, a sound and practical little boat for enjoyable summers on the water.
