Don't know off hand.

 

Will find out shortly.

 

I'm told to expect it to last only a year or maybe two.

looks like one hollowed /cut out tree trunk ,, do you plan to paint it ? 

 

kind of reminds me of the Indian canoes w/out the outriggers ...

Just had a chat with the boatmaker

 

What type of wood?

 

Lanipao was the name of the tree.

 

He said I might get 5 years use out of it if painted.

 

The worms in the river called amisog eat the wood.

 

I've had some benches and a bar counter made from worm-eaten wood and it looks pretty cool.

 

Not great for a boat though.

Cant tell from the picture. Does it have a bottom there at the back? Or is it already half sunk? I might be able to send you a couple big coffee cans to get you through a few minutes in the water. Best watch out for them "tree" cobras, though. OffTopic: Did you ever hear anything about that?

The guy in that topic sounded like he knew his stuff:

 

'sub-adult king cobra'.

 

Good enough for me.

 

and yeah the canoe filled up this morning with the heavy rains associated with the LPA. Huge thunderstorms here too.

That was my first thought too. I hope it just finished raining and the water was not caused by a leak. Otherwise, cool looking boat. 

 

ps:  good luck with the boat BossHog. Hope it brings you many years of joy.

As long as it gets me to Palau on my next visa run it will be worth the two grand.

Dugouts are great, they handle superbly. Get it dried out good, and several coats (everywhere) of marine epoxy paint (repaint every other year), and it should last much longer than the builder anticipates. The worms/rot can only attack it where wood is exposed.

Those are interesting traps. Ever catch any crawdads with them?
