The pram from Hjerting, Denmark of 1930

This simple design pram was built in Hjerting, at the southern end of the Danish North Sea coast around 1930. It was made of spruce and had a dagger board to reduce drifting while under sail. This type of boat was very popular around Hjerting and used to catch fish with hook and line, nets and traps. The shape was similar to the dories that were carried on the large schooners of the Newfoundland fishermen.


A description and plans of the boat are given in the book by Christian Nielsen, "Wooden Boat Designs, Classic Danish Boats measured and described", Stanford Maritime, London 1980, ISBN 054007396-2.
