Wooden ships comments on this Coves pram dinghy

Edgar Cove pram dinghy built as a tender to Yawl No.77, one of the local Salcombe Yawl racing fleet.


Clinker planked in mahogany all copper rivet fastened to steam bent oak timbers.  Double width mahogany centreline plank makes the garboards on both sides on an oak back bone with a pair of oak bilge stringers each side.  Transom with sculling oar position

Full length stringer to carry the thwarts, copper fastened through the hull.

Oak gunnel reinforced with grown oak knees in the corners.  She has had a modern white rubbing strake added at some point in the past.

Three thwarts with rowing positions for the centre and bow thwarts, foot supports for the rowers fastened to the middle sole board.


Tidy little dinghy in very original condition, now in need of stripping and varnishing.  This will make an ideal little project for someone as she is easily lifted by two people, can fit on a car roof rack and will not take up much space in the garage.
