Need input on SeaDog Boats Fly Fishing Pram.

Warren: I like your boats and I think your step-by-step instructions are fantastic; a real credit to boat builders.

I have collected a lot of plans (except the Smith Bros because they are not available), including yours, but I have not quite found what I am looking for.

I would like a pram that has a little less rocker on the bottom and along the rails then yours. Also, it has to be a flat bottom. And be 10 feet long.

Both the Flycaster and the 10ft HSP are flat bottomed boats, and neither has that much rocker to them. If you pull the side panels in, the rocker flattens out some more.

Thomas, I just came across your post. I own the Pram you see on the Seadog web site it was his demo model that he used at shows and etc. I have added a removable folding seat, Scotty anchor pullys and a Scotty fly rod holder. I also painted the sides and bottom a dark green. I have had compliments on it everywhere I go. It is a very sturdy and very functional boat. Let me know if you would like to see it.

Dick I am trying to get info on these boats, I'm guessing they are out of business. Do you have any info on them or any way to get a set of plans. Thanks Steve

Steve13,

I happened across the Seadog website last year and became inspired. I tried contacting them, but it appears they were in business only from about 2002 to 2008. This led me to try to duplicate what I like about the Seadog as a DIY project this March and April. Locate the "Pram build" thread in this sub-forum and you will see photos of the pram being constructed over about 6 weeks. (It doesn't take that long to make it, but there are a lot of days spent letting epoxy cure, primer cure and dry, and paint and varnish dry and cure.

My pram is not identical to the Seadog. I made a flat bottom, rather than curved side to side, and I built mine a few inches wider, wanting the room and stability to take grandsons fishing in the not-too-distant future.

Fred posted in that thread, and he now owns the Seadog pram Dick refers to above in this 4 1/2 year-old thread.
