Check the WoodenBoat Forum. Guys there have built them. I've heard that they are great boats.

The wooden boat forums move fast and you may get passed over when you go there.

There are quite a few of us here on sailnet that are very into all things wood. The pram your going to build is a great starter boat and has some good features that will be used in building other boats. Will you be building stitch and glue or traditional? Prams are nice because you don't have the complex bevels you need when building boats with pointed bow.

I've done a take off from Gardner's book for a 12 ft semi dory but I put the project on hold for now.

Good Luck!

I built one from plans about 10 years ago from Woodenboat plans. It was one of the most enjoyable and satisfying things I've ever done. Take your time on each step, and savor the details. You'll learn patience,as I did . Try to do as much as you can with hand tools, it doesn't take any longer and you'll learn a lot. That's really what it's all about. I also learned how to sew by making the sails, and I can't tell you how much I saved over the years with that skill.
Good luck and enjoy,
Marc

My wife and I built the 7'7" nutshell (sailing version) last winter. Folks at Chesapeake Light Craft were very helpful with questions that arose during the build. I would agree with the previous post regarding using hand tools and the build experience. From our cruising experiences this past summer (Penobscot Bay, ME), we found her to be the perfect tender.
Two photographs are attached (I think!).
