    Re: Almarco Pram *8'* RARE and Collectible* $1200

    salmonid,
    The pram is still for sale. I really thought the guy would come through as he was a long time member of a fishing site.
    First off, the pram was made in 1997 and I would say is in exceptional shape for its age.
    Anyway there are a few things missing from the ad that are also included. Two lead anchors with rope and chain, two cast aluminum anchor pulls to place wherever you want, and a wheel that goes into a carrier on the bow that allows you load your boat lift up the stern with the handles and walk it down to the lake or river.
    Text me or give me a call if you're still interested.

    Almarco Pram *8'* RARE and Collectible* $1200

    Selling an Almarco aluminum pram. Length is 8'. It is fully welded and RARE.




    Over the 20 years that they were made, a little over 600 of them were produced.




    I have included the hull number. The first three digits are of the manufacturer, the next are the sequence, the letter designating which month the boat was built, A-L, the next would be the year in two digits, and the last would be the sequential number each boat.




    The most innovative and distinctive marks on Almarco prams are the built in handles in the bow and stern. These cutouts are really smart, weight saving, and secure, a great place to strap down to the roof rack or in the bed of a pick up.




    The most important factor of the boat is the weight, with it coming in at around 65 lbs its so easy to maneuver. This alone and to have all my gear and to be able to fish in comfort is how it all comes together.




    I've not encountered another lightweight welded pram that was better suited for fly fishing still or moving water than this pram.




    I painted the interior bottom with epoxy and used sand in it to keep you from sliding around while standing.




    I also used Coat-it on the bottom. It needs to be scraped and re-done. So I am including two quarts of Coat-it.




    Also included is a brand new Minn Kota Endura C2 electric trolling motor. It has a 30" shaft and 30lb. thrust.




    Oars are in good shape too.




    This won't last long.
