PRAM AND MCGREGOR CANOE



Jack Lightfoot has been busy. He built a Francis Herreshoff/John Gardner pram, then an Iain Oughtred McGregor canoe (15'8" x 33"), and has now started a Phil Bolger dory. Jack writes the McGregor took him six months to build, and that was without using any power tools. He used iroko and luan plywood, dimensional spruce, and some salvaged mahogany. The McGregor self-steers, he adds, but the winds at Christmas Tree Island, FL, are too strong for the sails most of the time.
