8′ Traditional Pram Dinghy – Nigel Sabin

Nigel built an 8′ Traditional Pram Dinghy using no copper nails or adhesives, but wooden tree nails, or trunnels.  Built the right way up, the boat has Alaskan yellow cedar transom and planking, with oak timbers and transom fashion pieces.  Because he used no metal fastenings or adhesives, Nigel needed to think very carefully about the construction process.  Now finished, ‘Zazzle’ is a delight, clearly demonstrating Nigel’s creative background.
