Around the same time that I was commissioned to build the 18′ Faering, a long time client approached me to build him a 8’clinker pram. He had thought to build one himself but on reflection realised that it wasn’t going to be possible. She’ll be used as a tender to a boat I built for him in 2013.
As you can see it is a fairly simple boat built over a single mold. The planking is 3/8″ or 9mm Lawson’s Cypress like I used on Spraoi. As I was working alone it was easier to screw the planks together before nailing as I was using a bedding compound in the laps to ensure that the boat wouldn’t need to take up each time it was used.
If you would like your own boat custom built for you please don’t hesitate to contact me, Tiernan Roe, at +353 86 1586937 or by email or you can use the contact page if you wish.
