Hi SCUBA. Please check out the forum at the Philippine Home Boatbuilder's Yacht Club. I'm sure you'll find everything you need ... actually a lot more than you'll want I'm afraid. Oh and you might be interested to hook up with the other builders in Bohol, I think there are two of them.

Quick update:

Got most of those glue battens in ... also added deck stringers like Robert and Greg, a few more to go then some other interior "fixtures" then I'll start finishing the interior.

Started making the rudder using the technique I saw Greg use.

Still a work in progress though.

Future VG23 in the Philippines

Post by Mark Wilson » Thu Feb 11, 2010 9:04 am

Hi incc, I am new to this, but i am interested in the VG23. I posed some questions in the forum an D2 Maine suggested i contaact this thread. My concerns were where i could purchase all the materials except wood here in the Philippines. I am really concerned about spars, rigging, sails, and hardware. I assume with a little searching i could find epoxy, paint ect in hardware stores. By the way I live just outside Del Monte plantation, Cagayan de Ore, Mindanao. thanks Mark Wilson

Hi Mark. Come visit the http://www.pinoyboats.org - this is the website of the Philippine Home Boatbuilder's Yacht Club (PHBYC). There are active discussions on where you can get materials and equipment. The biggest problem is really getting a mast which is particularly true for the VG23. Currently, there is no VG23 in our fleet but one is under construction by a member here in Manila.

CB case, modified to also take the bulb keel, installed:

Aft view of the case which will stick out of the cockpit sole:

I made it stick out so I can make the top removable and so I'll have extra space to put the CB lifting tackle in. Should also make it easier to pound the CB loose when it gets stuck.

Inside view of the seats, not yet glued to the hull.
Image
Notice I assembled them stitch and glue style which I think will make the seats stronger and make up for the 3-ply-only plywood I used. The thing is, I realized this only after I'd assembled them, that it is going to be harder to glue them to the hull ... nothing comes free afterall.

Doubler pads for the stanchion posts:
Image

Hopefully, I'll have the bunks, seats (inner side only), and the aft bilge painted this Saturday, and maybe just maybe I'll have them glued by Sunday.

Oh by the way, sorry if the boat is a mess, was too lazy to clean up before taking the pictures.

Sounds familiar. :D

Can't you get in under the seats, once in place, and shape nice clean fillets?

I was going to say, *Nice job at building a small keelboat inside your SB18 berth*, but.... nah... :lol:

Right... that's a mess???? I refuse to allow Bondo's AD14 pictures to set the bar for a clean build. He blows things out with a leaf blower before pictures! :lol:

A kid could do it no problem but I'm too many decades beyond that ... but yes that's why I said I made things harder :cry: ... should be a small adventure.

There's another one in the starboard bunk :)

I'll aspire to his level but I sincerely doubt I'll ever make the grade.

Well the "adventure" did happen but man I'm still sore from it.

Image

Next time I'm using the good stuff for the seats or even just using the next higher thickness rather than having to crawl around like that again.

Actually I'm not quite finished, notice the unpainted battens. Some touching up is also sorely needed. I'll let my neck muscles recuperate first.
