Fiddlehead 10' 6"
The 10' 6" 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.
