Serge, a flat bottom pram will float in a couple inches of water. I used it on the flat next to the Wheel Ditch in Islamorada for years. That flat is mud bottom and comes out of the water at low tide. Once I made the mistake of hitting it at the end of the outgoing. I lost a shoe trying to get off the mud (funny now but not then) but since it hardly needs much lubrication under it I got off pretty quick. I’ll be taking it out of storage and bringing it to the house on Cudjoe in the next couple of weeks. If you shoot me your email address I’ll send you some pics. I plan to let visitors that want to DIY use it for Bones. I’ll probably tow it to some spots nearby and use it myself from time to time as the Egret is not made for the skinny stuff. I need 10 inches to float that barge!
