Eastport Pram Building

Hello, I´m building Eastport Pram from plans in Leon, Mexico. All of you are invited to see the process at my site:


Since this is my first boat at all, all coments, observations and questions are always welcome at my email address.

Happy sailing!

Look'n good!  Are you planning on removing the stitches or just cutting them off?  I removed my and very glad I did.  It was a very easy task with a propane torch.  If you remove, take the time to fill the holes before glassing, I did not, thinking they would naturally fill themselves with the fillets and multiple coats of epoxy.  I ended up with a couple of dents... lesson learned for my next build.

Hi  Andy

I've built one and its a good first boat, perhaps a little cramped for an adult to sail. My only real criticism is the gooseneck. Because it revolves around a square mast there can be a lot of stress. Firstly I would round off the mast a bit where the gooseneck hinges and secondly my plywood gooseneck split, I have therefore made one out of oak with no further problems.

Best wishes
