Off the mold – ready for gunnels, seats and finishing.

As you can see, this boat does not have steam bent ribs as are called for in the plans we e-mail out for free.  With the oak framing and the double gunwales it is not necessary.

As you can see, the pram is a lightweight craft and is just what you need to get from the dock to your mooring.  The pram tows well due to the vee – bottom and the rocker.   It’s also a great for vessel for teaching your small fry to row and sail.
