    They're polished and in a bag, I may a put them on tomorrow or I may wait until the owner has a seat and place them according to the owner's stature.

    Looking very good!

    Here's some possible mods you may want to consider, or see if the owner is interested.

    First, I'm assuming you have flotation tanks fore and aft under the seats. That means you had to use screws to mount the lower gudgeon. On the used Eastport Pram I recently acquired, these were leaking pretty badly, so I installed access plates on both bow and stern seats. I'm not a fan of any sealed areas on boats, and this allowed me to replace the screws with bolts sealed into the holes.








    Second, I added a daggerboard cover, as I got tired (and embarrassed) of having a wet but after rowing in a chop.

    Third, I added a brass L swing-aside pintle lock on the transom to keep the rudder in place.



    Really enjoying how well you've documented this build!

    Thorne, there is a solid mahogany block inside the transom where are the lower grudge attaches,

    I just want it gone so I can get on with life or what's left of it, ill be 72 next month!

    She is definitely a cute boat if you like cute boats I'd still rather be on a 38 to 42 foot boat,

    Thank you you hugh!

    And yes the measurements are correct on both sides it's the optical illusion that's making you ask me if I measured properly!

    A lovely couple from Bryn athyn PA.

    you could see it in their eyes and hear in their conversation how much they love wooden boats! I am blessed twice in less than three months!

    Oh and the new owner mentioned to me, that she did read all of the building discussion here! And she paid me one hell of a nice statement " women boat builders selling to women .. AWESOME!

    Any hesitation they had about buying a hand-built boat was diminished because of my presence here on the forum!

    Denise - I can't tell from your photos, but it looks like the lugsail halyard runs athwartships, not fore and aft. Is that correct? The Eastport Pram that I acquired has it set up fore and aft and it is awkward to use.

    Cheers!

    oh.. I just jury rigged it. told the new owners they should learn how It's almost a toy like boat, so not much is needed. It was a long piece of line, I didn't want to cut it up. So Took it down to the cleat after raising the sail.. then took it out along the boom just to "show" them it could be mid to end sheeted.
