There are LOTS of 8' sailing prams around the Bay Area, and nearly all of the non-racing ones will be much cheaper than the materials used in their construction = not to mention sails, trailers, etc. Much of the Bay is really too rough and windy for 8' prams, and if you want to row any distance, something with a longer waterline will be MUCH faster and easier. If you want to build a trad boat design from trad materials, buy plans, tools and materials suited for that design and go for it. Why not show up for some of the TSCA rows, or check out the boats in the SF Marina and Maritime Museum?
I've been a fan of Wooden Boat for a long time (my dad always had the magazine in the house when I was a kid) . Been in Cali for 20 years now and although I've done more surfing out here than back in Southern New England, I haven't done nearly enough boating, and I plan on changing that (with the 9' 6" Nutshell pram as a last resort). I'm really looking at sailboats, and if this pram does have a ballast centerboard (Is that why you mentioned racing?), that could help provide some extra safety in sailing some of the protected coves of the Bay (Monterey Bay too). Plywood construction (plywood over frames) is something I believe I could handle (Is that do-able, or no you feel this is strictly a plank on frame design?) but I know it'll take longer to construct and I don't want to try the wife's patience too much with my first build. I'll mention some aspects of my Dad's experience, I was in college at the time and so could only give him limited assistance (Like standing barefoot in the finished but unpainted hull and sloshing pentachlorophenol wood preservative all over the boat and myself - still no sign of cancer - but knock on wood). He glued up the mast and boom from fir, not spruce but it didn't turn out too heavy and worked well. On one occasion a buddy and I towed it behind a 26 foot Pearson Commander for a long weekend's cruise. I still have a mental image of my buddy's then brand new (1965) Beattle haircut standing out horizontally around his head like a chimney sweep's brush from the centripetal acceleration.
Again it was a nice little boat, good turn of speed on a reach reasonably weatherly upwind , and we could stuff a lot of gear on it as a tender.
Seems to me that if you're going to use a palette of materials, you're best off to build a design that was intended for those materials. My own pram is a Bob Baker Puddleduck, a design that was intended to be built of plywood, sticks, glue and screws.
John is an excellent teacher and writer and I'll bet that its construction documentation sets a new standard.


I imagine if you order the Goodchild stuff you'll simply get these page perhaps in a little clearer form. The pram does look a bit much (although I'm glad I have the docs on hand) when one considers the Nutshell.
It's tough to guess for someone else then maybe find out later after presenting all sorts of possibilities, that he's a former North American Finn champion. If you have other aesthetic needs and want to make a production of it, re-lofting for glued lap or strip composite would not be difficult. The Eastport Pram, with more than 800 built, is one of the most popular small dinghies in the world. 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.
For all its virtues, perhaps the neatest thing about the Eastport Pram is the ease of construction using CLC's patented LapStitch process. 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.
I went to the Coast Guard, and then the local police, and soon realized that my case was hopeless.

Maybe if you you could write down what you want to do, how many people will do it with you, how often you want to do it, what you've previously done, how much you want to spend, how you want to store or transport the boat, etc.
The result is a boat that is as easy and satisfying to row as you can expect on such a short waterline. Not a clumsy add-on, the large standing-lug sail and efficient rudder and daggerboard convert the pram into a proper sailboat with enough real performance, upwind and down, to keep the most seasoned sailors interested. Not only does the hull go together in a single weekend, but everyone agrees that the lapstrake Eastport Pram is one of the most beautiful dinghies they've ever seen.


We utilise both traditional methods such as carvel or clinker and modern methods such as strip planking, cold molding or clinker plywood. After the glue sets, remove the nails and save for the next project (I do not mean ringed boat nails, duplex nails have two heads. All of the sort of stuff that automatically rules out certain sets of boats and opens up others.
I would have been happy with 50 hours of work to get a descent result with Gartside's pram, but now I must have a little charm.
The chines seem to improve tracking particularly when towing, though I note you want to carry it on deck. 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.
The 48-inch beam means that the likelihood of capsize is remote as long as the sheet is never tied down. It will take the patient novice only 40-50 hours to assemble the hull, with a little more part time work for finishing. 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. The ply checked pretty badly aft a couple of easons but we just flooded it with more paint.
My buddy was sitting in the pram holding on tightly to both gunnels when the pram surfed ahead to one side of the Commnder, running over the tow line. In fact, the standard kit includes the daggerboard trunk, to make the conversion quick and easy months or years later!
