Micro Auray Punt

The “Micro Auray” measures 7’2″ x 3’3″ and can be built using the split side technique. She displaces about 780 lbs just before flooding. At 250 lbs, one person load, her freeboard is about 7″.

The overall shape is conserved beautifully. Both length and beam are 3/4 of the original Philip Bolger 9’9″ x 4’2″ plywood punt from his book “Boats with an Open Mind”, so the L/B ratio is the same, about 2.2. The shape looked from above is the same. The height is 4/5 of the original, so the “Micro” is proportionally slightly higher than the original “Auray”. The total volume is 0.45 times that of the original, so if the original is a boat for 2 to 3 people, this is a one-person boat.
