Ask him if he want to come up to San Fernando , Cebu and build one for me....... great pictures too..... thanks

  

 

I will ask but not sure how he would do that. He has his tools and work space here. You offering to pay hotel for a few weeks etc?

He's making handcrafted mahogany paddles. I've been told it will fit an engine but I want it for exercise.

Lol.

 

She refuses to go out with us as she can't swim.

Hell, powering it with a four stroke, do you think he will be able to handle it ?    :yahoo:

I completely see your point...but for me...would at least have a small one in case you got caught in a heavy current or just got tired...

Blue! And handcrafted mahogany paddles.

 

My choice of paint was black, white, green, yellow, blue, and red.

So you have all of the primaries, you can mix any colour you want!

Red!

 

It's almost time to move it to the beach and add the out rigging.

 

The white is masking tape by the way. There is no white stripe.

 

Hope your enjoying. I'm tickled. Just a few more days and I'll have my own Banca!

 

I can always add a engine later. This boat was built so I can get some exercise every day. I can't stand to go into duma any more to goto the admittedly very nice swimming pool there. It's just to much hassle and stress.

Very nice project, thanks for sharing ...

 

I am a lazy old fart and would want a small motor as well... and maybe a bit bigger so 2 or 3 people could enjoy it. I do love fishing ...

The stores don't have a paint mixer and having him do it by hand might come out with an inconsistent color. I liked the blue and red well enough I didn't chance it.

It is a custom built two seater. You can see the front seat in the first photo of this post: http://www.livingincebuforums.com/topic/89972-my-banca-boat-build-thread/?p=1162641

 

I wanted it small enough I could solo paddle the boat. But 4 of us fit in it. Not sure how low in the water 4 of us would make it though....
