    To be pedantic, a dinghy with a transom at each end, generally called a "pram" in the UK should really be spelt "praam". This is the correct Scandinavian name from where they originated

    Cheers, Nerys.
    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    Evenin' Granpa,
    I would say Skiff yes, Pram no (except when it has wheels and a hood, otherwise colloquially known as a 'Blunder-bus'). ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜
    Personal choice??
    What you have built seems to be a Skiff, pointed bow. Then cut down to make a Pram,i.e. transom stern AND bow.

    Question to all you builders. Does the Pram need floor boards or not? How about the Skiff?

    The first pram was too long for the Yacht at 10โ€™ so I cut it down to make an 8โ€™ Dinghy which suits this larger boat much better. After a bit more sanding, I will prime and paint it.
