With agathis planking over sawn oak frames, this boat is just over 13 feet long with a beam of two-and-a-half feet. Owner Mark Collins is at the oars in these photos.

Dan Cassidy was a member of Bob Elliott's WoodenBoat School summer of 2000 class, "Building the Salisbury Point Skiff." Dan was lucky enough to win the boat in the class drawing and hauled it to Cushing, Maine where Ed Mezzapelle finished her between April and August 2001. Dan and Ed launched the skiff LITTLE LINDA ANN on August 4, 2001 at Davis Cove on Pleasant Point in Cushing, Maine. Ed and Dan hope the other class participants will enjoy seeing the finished product.
Dean Whitlock writes, “These two prams, 11' long on the left and 13' long on the right, were built to the same pattern by Bob Elliott’s class, ‘Building the Norwegian Pram,’ at WoodenBoat School in August 2001. The eight members of the class split into two groups, each group built one boat under Bob’s excellent tutelage in just one week—we started with rough planks on Monday morning and launched our prams on Saturday afternoon.” Dean and one other class member each won a boat in the class raffle.
