Here are the ingredients I’ve got together for the boat, just in case anyone wants to build along. People’ve been asking me how much it costs so I put prices in.
Calamina Plana (flat Calamina.) Already cut into strips for boat – 25soles. Note – There are 2.8 soles to a dollar
10kg Brea (tar-like blocks that boil down into a sticky goo) – 6 soles per kilo
3kg of 3.5 inch nails – 24 soles
1kg of 3 inch nails, 0.5 kg of very small nails – 11 soles
2kg of estopa (rope to plug gaps between planks along with the Brea) – 29soles
4 pieces 3 by 2 inch wood at 8 soles each
15 pieces of katawa armarilla planks at 12 soles each.
Hildo’s wage– have to discuss conclusively today but will likely be around 200-250soles for a week/10 days maestro work.
