My new boat!

Recommended Posts

Dragonladies.org

 

I might be able to send you a couple big coffee cans to get you through a few minutes in the water.

 

   The easiest thing to do is to drill a few holes in the bottom to let the rainwater drain out.

 

     :)

 

 

    I wonder if a coat of cheap, normal housepaint would work, slap it on yearly, assuming you drag it out of the water when not in use?

The worms get in any little scratch, if they aren't in there already. Just use it natural. far cooler.

I hear ya. I'm not the smallest guy around either.

 

You can actually get about 200 kgs in the boat before it gets to the waterline.

 

A removable wide plank of wood balanced on the gunwales (?) with padding (like on a jeepney bench) stapled on works okay as a bench seat.

 

Got a guy been scouring the jungle this week looking for a bigger tree. Might have a double-wide yet.

 

The river narrows down under the canopy near the source, though. Can't make 'em too big.

 

Will keep it natural bob. It'll make a cool flower planter for the yard when it rots out.

Only improvement I'm thinking of is adding another plank in the middle and mounting a battery-powered turntable for vinyl albums.

Had my neighbor build this for me.

 

Keeping it in the backyard in the picture there.

 

Gonna finally have my own ride for night-time crabbing in the river.

2000 pesos all in.

 

A pair of paddles cost me 150 pesos additional.

 

 

Woah!!!!!!!! Your backyard caught my eye more than the bought. May I ask where abouts you live in Siargao Is..? I've been living in Mactan (Cebu) for the last 6 years and desperately need a change. Theres just too many people, pollution is bad and its just getting worse. Thinking of moving up north towards Liloan not too far out though.

The casco for boat #2 was delivered to our river jetty this afternoon.

 

It's bigger than the first which is just big enough for me and my daughter to paddle around at sunset.

 

Hoping this one holds the paddler and three not too chunky passengers.

 

Obviously it's a work in progress: needs the outriggers and seats yet and some planing.

 

The name of the tree/wood sounds something like "boneton" or bonton"

 

Anyone have an idea what tree that might be?

True! Painting it would cost as much, if not more, than the boat!

so i got a furniture woodshop here now.

 

and i got my guy to make two canoe paddles for me.

 

they're made from jamayaon wood and seriously heavy but he's says they'll be lighter when the wood thoroughly dries.

 

I remain doubtful: it's gonna be a serious workout paddling that thing.

 

anyways i wanna put some protective coating around the edge of the blade.

 

what am i looking for? epoxy something or rubberized cement or what?

 

any suggestions appreciated.
