The minisprint had the sliding seat, the minisail did not have one. I don't know if there are any other differences between the two but I imagine Rupert would know if he is around

So categorically hydrographer's boat is NOT a minisail...

And just to make sure look at the underside - Minisails had lovely concave sections between chines...(and if i remember rightly a sliding seat too)
