Port Townsend Watercraft in BriefPT Watercraft is located in Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula in NW Washington. Port Townsend is fortunate to have a great marine industry and many have had a part in making PT Watercraft a reality. So I started with a 6'3" flat space for sleeping, and added just enough bow and stern for good sailing lines.
It's worth lingering over the Bolger reference for a quick primer on the advantages of these plumb-sided sharpie hulls. Phil Bolger would have given the boat a pram bow for more volume on thesame length and beam. Even without the extra volume afforded by a pram bow, there's still room up forward for one of my favorite beach-cruiser features: a dedicated self-draining well for storing the anchor and its rode. The whole middle of the boat is open space, reserve buoyancy being provided by two large watertight lockers fore and aft. The yawl rig, with a roller-furling jib and a "Solent lug" mainsail (visually almostindistinguishable from a gunter), offers numerous configurations, from speed in very light air to "jib and jigger" in a squall, to "Run for cover!" under jib alone in a gale.
If you live in windier areas or just want a simpler rig, a balanced lug mainsailand a leg o' mutton mizzen offers a lot fewer strings to pull. At Chesapeake Light Craft, "dinghy" means "Eastport Pram" and her larger sister, the Passagemaker Dinghy.
The Eastport Pram is 7'9", which is pretty small, but still not compact enough for storing aboard the smaller classes of cruising yachts. Builders who will go sailing will order the "Rowing Kit" AND the "Sailing Component Kit." Adding the Sailing Component Kit gives you the mast, boom, yard, daggerboard, rudder, sail, mast step, and a center thwart that's integrated with the daggerboard trunk.
All Eastport Prams have the holes for the temporary copper stitches drilled in the hull parts by our computerized machinery. We gave the Eastport Pram deep rocker for low wetted surface and to keep the transoms from dragging.


Small tenders should be able to withstand heavy handling alongside the mothership or in the dinghy park.
Plans, for those starting from scratch, comprise full-sized patterns for every part, plus a complete instruction manual specific to the Nesting Pram.
We can custom build to any design - for example those by Iain Oughtred, David Payne, Paul Gartside, John Welsford, Mark Bowdidge, Francois Vivier, Atkin , Bolger B&B etc.
We are sole Australian agents for Swallow Boats(UK) including the BayRaider, the Australian importer and re-seller of the world renowned Bruynzeel BS1088 Gaboon Marine Plywood (Lloyds certified), Barton Marine products (UK) and Chesapeake Light Craft (USA).
It is the partnership of Ashlyn & Russell Brown, desiring to bring modern and innovative designs to the home boat builder. Turn Point Design, Jim Franken, Townsend Bay Marine, Edensaw Woods, NWSWB, NW Sails and NW Canvas, and also Bieker Boats of Seattle. We want boaters to safely have fun for many years with their creation while saving money, have less negative impact on the environment, and much less frustration with limitations typical of many small boats on the market. As it sits in the shop right now, lacking the outwales, leeboard mounts, and the strategic height-reducing paint scheme, the thing looks monolithically wall-sided. The result is a boat that is as easy and satisfying to row as you can expect on such a short waterline. We utilise both traditional methods such as carvel or clinker and modern methods such as strip planking, cold molding or clinker plywood.
Russell is explicit in his manuals and kit detail, intent on providing very high quality stitch & glue boat kits and related products.
To really test the lower bounds of storage space in a long-duration camp-cruiser, I made this a nesting dinghy. Since the crew will weigh nearly as much as the boat, it's helpful that wherever he or she sits, there's always some bottom beneath them. The hull will be cut apart at thebulkheads quite late in construction, just before it's time to paint!


Used as a tender to a larger boat, or kept at a dock, it's possible to undertake a long afternoon row around the local waters without breaking a sweat. He has figured out how to make this technique work really well and the finish is often mistaken for a spray job. Flared sides would allow the crew to sit further outboard and "hike out" to resist the heeling force of the big rig. In addition to multiple layers of fiberglass on the bottom panel, there are two cypress rubbing strips on the bottom to take the abrasion of dragging on a beach. It takes time to prepare good boat kits and plans." I'll update this page as more information on availability and price are known.
These up-to-date, detailed drawings shown here are probably very close to the final version, but don't hold me to that. I've seen far more capsizes in boats this size caused by the crew shifting their weight to the wrong place at the wrong moment than by wind action.
A critical tweak for close-maneuvering, when you need to douse sail and spring to the oars without getting tangled up. At the end of the day you'll push far up into the marshes to drop anchor in a few inches of water. For a hundred years MacGregor was a primary source of inspiration to people who wanted to cruise in very small boats.I'm not going to spend a lot of time here selling you on open-boat cruising.
There are distracting daydreams about shipping the Nesting Expedition Dinghy to far-off cruising grounds, like the estuaries of Britain's East Coast, or the River Shannon in Ireland.
I present as evidence a recent Cruising World Magazine review that described a Beneteau 34, with its hot-and-cold running water, as a "pocket cruiser."Which brings us to my latest personal project, in which I asked myself the question, "Just how small can we go and still have a solid camp-cruiser with good sailing and rowing qualities?" The appeal of these tiny boats includes the low upfront cost, the magical way in which small boats make small voyages feel like big ones, and the ability between adventures to store the boat maintenance-free in the backyard or a corner of the garage.
