The Selway Fisher Micro 10. There’s just something about boats like these that ring my bell.
Small is good. This small? Well..
Selway Fisher says: Using the Micro 8 as a starting point l have drawn up a boat with 25% additional length which, in such a small craft, gives a lot of additional useful space for stores and simple creature comforts. Construction is just the same with simple stitch and tape used over a basic ply framework of fore and aft girder and bulkheads—l have tried to keep the overall construction weight to that of the Micro 8.
Some of the ballast is water and she uses a simple staysail type rig with controls led inside the boat along with the steering system.
