I finally got my power proa and its trailer painted properly with 2 part poly. Some of you might recognize the main hull as Magic Hemple’s ama. (a ride is a ride…you get them where you can) The ama is (2)1 mm CM birch plywood. 80 lbs all up without motor. The 4 hp Mercury 4 cycle pushes it at 13 knots. I calculate that it gets 18 MPG at full throttle. I used to car-top it with the Honda Accord, but the truck I drive now is too tall, so trailer it is. I’m not good enough to sail a proa, but they sure make sense as a power commuter.
