I've recently been talking with Chuck Merrell, a fellow Jessie Cooper builder who is now plying his trade as a naval architect up Seattle way, who sent along a couple of pictures of his newish Pram design that sure looks nice in the attached picture...

....It's his ten-foot Peach Pie design and you may want to check out Chuck's website ( where he also has some neat stuff if you are someone who likes dinghies, Junk rigs or up-market shanty boats.

Now if he could just explain where someone can actually live on a boat on the Pacific side of the US of A, I might even be interested in a little "pied a l'eau" up there where it's moist.
