A Beautiful Pram

A wonderful example of what one man can do while stuck on a mountain top in Colorado for the winter, while waiting for sailing season to begin. My heart goes pittipat just looking at it. He says the build is called "skin on frame".

Re: A Beautiful Pram

She's a beauty, but not a pram. Looks like a SOF Whitehall (or Wherry) to me.

I watched Dave Gentry build one of those at a messabout once. Neat boatbuilding process.

Re: A Beautiful Pram

Well, against my better judgement, I learned something today. I have always used skiff and pram interchangeably and after reading your post, I went and looked it up.

Thanks!

I have become somewhat of an authority on prams. I once spent 2 years building a "build-in-a-month" pram.
