    You should definitely check out Gary's book and blog. I built my Wa'apa from his plans which include a really simple ama. I built my amas from 3mm plywood, they are 15cm x 15cm x 4.2m and have 95kg of buoyancy each.

    Here's the boat in some of my YouTube videos...

    I like the simplicity of those amas........There is not a lot of reason to make them fancy. I have a tendency to over complicate things.

    Thanks for the suggestion.................. H.W.
