Well I finally have finished most of my O scale pram, this is what I wanted the life preserver for. I still need some more details.

Nice, Hal! Very nice!

Any thoughts on a dog? That seems to me to be the kind of pram that needs a dog....

Excellent model, Hal. However, I know from experience that a life preserver is most effective when worn.

Looks good to me. At one time I owned a 1:1 scale pram but it was fitted with a mast and a
single sail. I'll try to find a photo of it.

Nice job !!

Thanks guys.

Pete, I thought about a seagull on the transom, but a dog could work too.

Mike, he took it off, he's on a beer break...

Maybe a little dampness in the bottom? Never seen a completely dry small boat.

Great job building the pram. Are you going to cut a hole in the water for the pram to sit into?

Hey Frank, when I finally find the home for it, yes I'll cut it in, but for now it is a homeless pram.

Just in case you want to add a sail to yours, this was a little El Toro Class pram, only 8
feet long. Not much but it handled well and it set a lifetime love of sailing in my two young sons. This shot was over 50 years ago.

Sgt. Bob, is that Capt. Bob? Great idea for the arrow on the top of the sail, "this side up".

Hal, what did you make the pram out of? I might have to make one for the O-Scale layout. It does look good, especially the life preserver.

Frank, it's all laser board with wood seats and wood gunwales and bracing. I soldiered some .015 bronze wire to make the oar locks because everything else was breaking.

FYI The figure was painted by Dave R...

Lovin' it here, Guys!

Great model, Hal, great boat, Bob! Kids with a love of sailing: Bonus!

First sailboat of the season was out on the Bay yesterday right before sunset. Temp about 40, wind around 5-6 kts, and I sat here looking out the window wishing and hoping.... But not freezing!

Keep going Guys!
