Wooden Ships Comments on this Selway Fisher Islay skiff

A beautiful, carefully built and carefully maintained boat that has worn her 14 years very lightly. Mostly original equipment in good or very good condition. Simple but powerful and adaptable rig for sailing solo, or up to three / four adults. Very responsive with good windward performance. Stable and seaworthy design. Low weight means she is easily beachable. Kept out of the weather in a shed for most of her life.
