Ama Cradles Completed

A few weeks ago, I put the finishing touches on the hull cradles for the amas. The construction from 2x4's was rather straightforward, with the exception of dealing with certain angles that my chop saw couldn't handle. The surfaces that come into contact with the hull are cushioned with foam pipe insulation, covered by strips cut from a neoprene laundry room mat faced with polyester. A very crude upholstery job to say the least.

Now, once the weather cools off enough for me to work with epoxy, I'll be able to redo the fiberglass on the tops of the amas.
