The Coot is an 8 foot pram built using cedar strips. It is a blunt nose boat designed to carry a heavy payload in a short boat. It will be functional and look good.
The first step is to draw the boat lines so they can be transferred to building jigs. I've done that and have started the process of making the forms. This is a little different that previous builds with a strongback. This strongback is comprised of two stringers that are locked together with the forms. I have the stringers made and two of the forms #1 and #7. There are 8 forms plus the bow transom and the stern transom.
