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

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

Evenin' Granpa,
I would say Skiff yes, Pram no (except when it has wheels and a hood, otherwise colloquially known as a 'Blunder-bus'). 😉😁
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.
Cheers Doug 😎
