I think a Pram with floor boards would be better. I believe the floor boards are there to help keep your feet dry. If water collects in the Pram the floor boards will keep your feet dry! But this is only my opinion!
Have to agree. In my experience all small boats ship water and a nice raised floor board helps keep you dry. Ron I guess we all have local traditions and sayings and it really isn't important what we do use as long as we understand. It appears to be a singularily Continental concept that we should all have to comply with their way. If your original Pram had boards then model them, if not follow the original design and keep true to scale.
