LEARNING EXPERIENCE



John and Jonathan Aitken built two Design 80 lapstrake prams using plans from Paul Gartside. The 7' boats are built using traditional methods and materials - red cedar and mahogany fastened to oak frames using copper roves and rivets. John named the first boat LEARNING EXPERIENCE, while his son Jonathan got the more elegant second boat. Jonathan uses his pram as a tender for his sailboat moored in Georgian Bay, Ontario. John is planning to build a Kulczycki Sassafras canoe next. Contact John at aitken@kos.net
