Ama lashings Part 5



In Tahiti we can see a fine example of a mixed connection. The stiff forward crossbeam uses a standard four strut connection while the slender and flexible aft crossbeam acts as a spring to allow the ama a limited range of motion in the pitch axis.

This is an even better example of a springy aft crossbeam from Bora Bora.

The bottom ama looks very cool, and very springy, whats the wood? Have you tried this?
