    Great to hear from you Thomas. I’ve been wondering how your project is going given the current situation. Looks fantastic and it can’t be far away now.

    How does my Romilly compare to Gartside #207?

    Here are the two boats as half models at identical scale that I made last summer:

    And, by the way, this is what I did during the first corona lockdown last spring: A stich and glue Eastport Pram. What a fun project!

    Nice progress!
    I really like the two halfmodels in comparisson. Both utterly beautifull boats.
    That pram is going on to the Gartside I presume.
    keep on postin´

    Yes Max, the idea is to use it as a mini tender to #207. The plans even show the outline of a 2,4m pram






    so the 2,36m Eastport Pram was the perfect fit, albeit still very small. We tried it with 2 adults, and although the pram seems to carry its load very nicely, boarding and disembarking is a kind of adventure. On the plus side tho boat is very light with its 28kg of mass, and as it has 2 built in watertight compartments it floats well even when filled up completely. What a difference to my Romilly, where I opted to trade the buoyancy compartments for storage space: If she would fill with water she would go down like a stone.

    Lupussonic, no, up to now I did not decide for the sailing rig. As you probably know one can buy a rig as an independent DIY kit, a good looking balanced lug sail, but more than the cost I was not convinced that it would really use it, may be I am wrong. It complicates the affair substantially, as it brings with it a mast, a boom, a sail, a rudder, a tiller and a centerboard, and I couldn't make up my mind around this. I frankly admit that the boat with its rig is wonderful view, and maybe some day I will upgrade. The mast step is already installed as well as the internally glassed centerboard case that only need to be opened from above and below with a hand saw.

    Ok, so a retro fit can be made..

    Those times where you are 400 meters from your mother ship, and the wind is on the quarter just perfectly, and you have water jerries and bags of food, it can be a saviour to pop up the mast and let the wind do the work for you. It does not have to be a fully performing upwind racer.

    Very nice work in any case.
