|Stringer and thole pins.|
I just discovered a boat on Duckworks that is called a "Jackson Pram". It is very similar to my boat but a 4 inches longer and 7 inches narrower. It also has no floors so you will sit in any water that comes aboard. It is designed for a double paddle.
I like the lines on "TARTLET" and I do like the sitting position on the longitudinal thwart/floors. I used the double paddle after the oars just to compare. It does well with either but I just prefer rowing. By the way, it rows pretty fast.
The oars I used came off the skiff. They are heavy and made portaging a bit of a struggle. I still have some of the yellow pine left from the crate, it's the same stuff that all the dimensional wood in the pram is taken from. I think I will use this to make the oars.
