    It's a small project in the scheme of things. Materials are nothing compared to your time...if you were building a 40' cat that would be another bucket of fish...

    you should get gougeon brothers’ book. (The Gougeon Brothers on Boat Construction: Wood and WEST System Materials). They created amas like you describe. It is a good book, I bought my 1st copy almost 30 years ago at 16.

    in the book the pre bend the halves when they are glued together.

    Silly me. That method has always intrigued me but intimidated also for its unpredictability.
