Here we go again (second ama)

During the past week Cinzia worked a couple of hours to fair the first ama hull.This morning we swapped the two amas: the first one, done, has been put aside on sawhorses, while the second has been put on the cradles. The two of us can move the completed hull around quite easily. It probably weighs around 40 kg, but we haven't measured it.

Today we worked 4 hours (so we passed the 200 hours mark), mainly to draw, cut and glue (as usual, using microfiber thickened resin) the three bottom butt blocks, In this pic you can see the various weights that we've used to press the butt blocks down.

Total work time to date: 201 hours
