Dennis Bullen on the Manukau Harbor in New Zealand recently built a new ama for his stretched Ulua to the design I'm using on the Va'a Motu. It has a high volume, a low wave piercing bow and plenty of rocker aft. It should throw less spray that the banana shaped amas.

Mokil is a Micronesian island near Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia. If you've got a big old tree in your backyard that you'd like to get rid of, this video will show you how to put it to good use.
I built a 30' power catamaran on Pohnpei back in the 70's and what I think of while I watched this video was the heat and humidity. I also remember that with enough Micronesians, you can carry a 30' cat hull down a very steep slippery jungle trail to the water.
