10 Foot Pram
Oar & Paddle / / 1999 views
Great little 10 foot drift boat, just doesn’t fit our family size anymore. The builder (father in law) modified a Ray’s River Dory design slightly and it worked out nicely. The single lengthwise bench and 6 options for oarlocks allows the little boat to be easily balanced depending on how much gear or people are on board. Two sets of oars can be stored under the bench. Includes 30 lb. anchor for fast water :).

This boat can handle two adults with overnight gear for fishing. I’ve run it through class 2+ rapids in Oregon and it really shines in these conditions. Amazingly maneuverable. Super stable for fishing. I would keep the boat if I had storage space with my other boat but I also hope it goes to a good home!
Last year I re-painted to a workman like finish. I’ve also recently re coated the bottom with “coat-it”. Tough stuff with kevlar fibers so it can be dragged over rocks etc when putting into a river. I’ve always considered this our little adventure boat. Hopefully the next owner will too.
Weighs around 175 lbs? My wife and I can carry for short distances. There are handle holes fore and aft.
It comes with a modified Harbor Freight trailer. Rewired and put in LED lights last year. I’ve repacked the bearings this year.
I’d be glad to do a video call look-see with very interested parties and answer any questions.
