Backyard Boat Building In The Philippines

8 posts in this topic

Hi all!

 

I would just like to let you guys know that a small group of home boatbuilding enthusiasts in the Philippines have a website and a discussion forum especially for concerns about building your own boat. (sail or power) several of the members are in Cebu actually, and are building boats and sailing actively in the waters of the Visayas.

 

Here's the website: www.pinoyboats.org

 

here's their forum: http://www.pinoyboats.org/forum

 

Cheers/Roy

My search is over, thanks so much Pinoypiper.

 

Name is Ned, and I"ve been searching for a site like Pinoyboats.org for a long time.

 

I'll be moving to Cebu soon, and will probably take on the task of building a boat for myself. I was thinking of having my boat shipped there from the states, but have come to learn that I can probably build one myself for less.

 

I've taken a quick look at the site, and it's exactly what I've been looking for. I really like Stephans C21 boat.

 

I'll register and get involved with the site, very soon.

 

Thanks,

 

Ned AKA CebuNed

Hi pinoypiper! My brother in law, Boni, fishes for food for his family from the shore and wants to build a boat. Do you think that your little sailboat would be good for such a use? If so, are the plans available at a reasonable price there?

Bet, Yes that is a hobie cat in the background. that picture was taken near the Taal Lake Yacht Club, where there are something like 20+ more of those hobies parked there. That picture was taken during the Round Taal Volcano Race (RTV) last year. The RTV is one of the events our club participates in.

 

Hi Ned, Looking forward to seeing you on the forum :thumbsup:

 

Oregonguy, My boat is only 11 feet long and 4 1/2 feet wide. You can definately use it for fishing, but it would depend on what kind of fishing you want to do or type of fish you want to catch. I've taken my boat out a small 2hp outboard motor and fished from the cockpit and I can cofortably say that I can cast on the boat while standing without fear of the boat tipping over. the design for my boat is called a Spindrift, plans for it are available from B&B yacht designs for around US$50. There are many free plans for boats available all over the web though. there are some here and several more here

 

Cheers/Roy

Piper, may I know who are the current forum members based in Cebu. I scanned thru the members list and can't find one.

 

BTW, you can also get a free plan for a canoe, kayak and pontoon by sending an email to this site:

 

http://jemwatercraft.com/free.php

 

Am planning to make a trimaran using the canoe and 2 kayaks.

wannabesailor is in Cebu, he's built a glen-l 10 and is currently finishing up an experimental fiberglass tunnel hull sailboat. There are still a couple of members from Cebu on our old forum who haven't signed up in our new one. our old forum is this one it's currently down at the moment, which is the main reason we put up this new one.

 

one of our members has actually built one of jemwatercraft's canoes, the muskoka.

      I'm looking for a particular steel (might also come in aluminum) product but know that without a "sample" I'm going to be pretty much SOL finding it here without knowing the real name of it or at least having a picture.  So I think if I describe it here maybe someone will known the name or perhaps a brand name or something.   Here goes...  Take a piece of heavy gauge 1.25" square bar.  Remove about  a 3/4" wide strip from the middle of one side and curl the 2 cut edges back towards the opposite side.  Then down the opposite side put a line of say 3/8" holes all the way down.  Maybe every 5th hole is a double so it's like 3/8"X3/4" slot.  I thought this was called speed bar or rack bar or something like that but Google isn't helping.  What's it called?

      I finally had a chance to eat at Cru steakhouse in the Marriott Manila. I heard a few references from our friend @miles-high and thought I would check it out.  Sorry Miles, I was severely disappointed. The wine list was horrible, I mean it was dismal. Come on. They ran out of the best wine on the list after one bottle. I asked if there was a sommelier on staff and the manager came over and informed me they were about to re-do the wine list, "maybe in June or July". What a joke! The wine list was shit. This place is supposed to be "the best" so if you want to be the best then have something other than  a $25 Mondavi Cabernet on the list as a feature. Horrible wine list. I can buy better at Rustans. On this occasion it wasn't about cost, and well,  they couldn't deliver. We asked for a proprietor's list, and it didn't exist. In fact the 'manager' didn't even understand what a "proprietor's list " was. I had to explain it to her. How embarrassing for her, and Marriott.  Regardless it was horrible. I don't mind paying 4-5 or hey, lets get on it and spend 10 times retail for a really good bottle of wine. After all it is allegedly the best steak house in Manila. Well, not even close!  They tried selling me a $25 bottle of Robert Mondavi available in every Walgreens  for 15k PHP. What a load of shit. The best bottle for value  on the menu was an Aussie Shiraz and they only had one bottle available. OK so moving on past the wines, after all its a steakhouse, right? So what about the steaks? Sous vide for the steaks with reverse sear tastes different than a properly cooked steak. I was NOT impressed at all. This was probably the worst experience I've had at a signature Marriott restaurant anywhere in the world.  Avoid at all costs and save your pesos boys. That was a complete waste of my time and money. I could do better getting pissed up at home, with a few  run of the mill steaks from Kroger and about 30 minutes of my time in my outdoor kitchen.  What a huge disappointment. The staff were great but they can only do so much. I blame the food/bev manager at Marriott for this disaster.  Never again starts my thoughts on Cru Steakhouse Manila.
