Fiddlehead

PLAN #1

10’ 6" FIDDLEHEAD
From BRYAN BOATBUILDING

The 10½' Fiddlehead is a redesign of Henry Rushton's "Wee Lassie". This was done in
order to use the much simpler dory construction. She is a very able boat for her size
and will carry an adult equally well on a still duck pond or open bay. Her watertight
storage compartments and spray deflecting cover give her extra security despite her
small size.
