New free plans for a 12' pram.

Post by jacquesmm » Tue Dec 10, 2013 11:41 am

New free plans: Thomas Tangvald gave us a new plan to post in the free plans section.
http://www.bateau.com/freeplans.php
The plan shows an efficient pram 3,60 meters long (12'), easy to build and economical.
The plans are available in metric only.
Instead of translating to inches, I suggest that you spend $ 4.00 to buy a metric measuring tape and get used to what is in fact the official system in the US. Metric is much easier to use than imperial. There is a lot less risk of errors.

The plans are free but we expect that you will thank the designer by sending him pictures of your boat and comments. Pictures and comments are welcome here too.

Thomas is a marine engineer with extensive boat building and sailing experience. He graduated from a UK university with a degree in Fluid Dynamics and currently resides in Brazil.
His design office T3 is available for custom design work in wood, composites and aluminum. His area of expertise is very efficient designs, mono or multihulls.

I don't seen the 12' pram plans at the link you provided. Also the external links on the oar page appear to all be dead.

Thanks

I removed it.
Thomas disappeared at sea a few months ago.
My son will redo the drafting and post the new version within a few months.
We will offer it in metric and imperial with the designer listed as Thomas Tangvald.

No bad feelings but I am going to delete this thread since the plans are not available.
