I am now planning that same trip. What would you like to know? Maybe between the 2 of us we can coordinate a good plan. I am in touch with a couple that has already done the trip, and are now in Davao. What would be your final destination?......i2f

Have you 2 spent in time in the Phils? If not you need to go, and spend some time if possible. The country is so diverse. From steaming hot humidity to nearly freezing......i2f

My Asawa (wife) is from San Carlos City, Negro Occidental.. I was stationed in Subic pier 4 during the early 80's. Currently I am boatless. Looking at some good used boats to fix up. But I may choose to build.

They build cold molded cats in Cebu. There are many designs in cold molded if you are going to build yourself, or have a boat built. What type of boat, and size are you thinking?

My wife is from Davao. We could be leaving as early as this Christmas for the Phils. What's your plan moving there?......i2f

I am flying over for Christmas. If I was to build a boat I would build it myself. I am considering building out of wood there in the Phils but not sure as of yet. I would prefer fiberglass build right here in the states. Outfitting is a little hard in the Phil. Thinking about Roger Long's Design.
Other Boat Designs

They just finished building a yacht yard on Samal Island. They have launched 2-3 boats already from it.
I would prefer to buy a good used boat. But I have limited funds right now.

First boat was launched Nov 16, 2008. It was Bruce Roberts designed 38.. From what I understand several more has been launched since then.




Not sure if any of them has been sail boats or not.
