Wooden Ships Comments on this Clinker Rowing Pram Dinghy
Clinker pram dinghy of unknown origin, although she has been around the river in Salcombe for more than 30 years. Recent cosmetic refit so she is looking smart.
There are about 3 cracked timbers which is only to be expected on a boat of this type but she is otherwise a sound dinghy. These prams are good load carrying boats, ideal as tenders or for simply pottering about on the water.
Clinker planked in mahogany, all copper rivet fastened to steam bent oak timbers. 3 broken timbers but otherwise sound.
White painted hull with varnished sheer strake.
Mahogany fore and aft transoms with mahogany quarter knees. Sculling notch in the aft transom.
Oak rubbing strakes.
Varnished mahogany thwarts resting on an oak stringer.
Varnished slatted mahogany sole boards.
2 rowing positions so the rower can change the thwart they use depending on what loads are in the dinghy. Foot rests aft.
Pair of varnished oars
Pair of galvanised rowlocks
