Our Fancy Pram is up for sale for $1000.

The Fancy pram was the clubs first build and was made to lines lifted from a boat built by Mr. A.C. Fancy in Coal Harbour circa 1920-1950. With western red cedar planking over oak frames, this rugged little carvel-planked, seven-foot tender was launched in September of 2000.
