Love Me Tender, Volume IV.5

It has been several months since I last made any progress on the Eastport Pram project.  Life, traveling, and other projects have taken priority.  It happens.  The great news is that the boat sits ready to be stitched and glued, the most fun and rewarding part of any stitch and glue boat building project.  This means that there is something to look forward to (unlike, say, a whole lot of sanding), and that it should be easy to get started again once time allows.

This is not to say that all boat building activities have ceased at the Lee Boatworks.  In the past few months I managed to complete a CLC Cradle Boat for my newborn nephew.  As an aside, the Cradle Boat was CLC's fifth-best selling kit in 2013.  I guess I played a small part in that.  :-)   Coincidentally, the Eastport Pram, and the Eastport Nesting Pram also made the list.


  1. Hi, Jon. I expect this will be Solitude III's tender. How do you think this will affect its performance? You sail on choppier waters so I'm curious to see how this handles.

  2. Hey, good to hear from you. Hope you build is going well and you are keeping your toes warm!
    I'm expecting that there shouldn't be too much trouble towing the pram behind Solitude, but I guess we'll see. I'll be sure to report out!
