    I recently had a motorized pumpboat built, 17 feet (5.23 meters), 7.5 hp gasoline engine.
    Can carry 500 lbs (227 kg) of passengers and cargo.
    Boat with engine is about 300 lbs (150 kg)
    Probably 20 feet plus for 4 passengers depending on their weight.
    Builder's name is Alejandro at Martisan Beach in Bacong. He and his wife sourced and transported all the materials which reduced much of the hassle.
    Whoever builds the boat make sure to use Santa Clara marine plywood, it costs a lot more, but very good quality, everything else will fall apart.
    Use a generous amount of pioneer brand epoxy and copper nails to hold it all together.
    My sidewalls are 1/2 inch and the bottom is 3/4 inch plywood, most fishermen will use 3/8 on the sidewalls and 1/2 on the bottom.
    7.5 hp engine, stainless steel prop shaft and prop, stainless steel rudder and universal joint was purchased for PHP8500 at Lucky Terminal on the very south end of the Blvd in Dumaguete.
    7.5 hp will push my boat around 16 kmph. More power and speed would be nice, 16 hp would be a hot rod.
    Longer and heavier boat will require more hp which will increase the price by at least PHP 5000
    The engine layout uses a lot of space in the boat even though the engine is very small.
    Mount the engine as far back as possible because the best passenger space is in front of the engine.
    Materials PHP 16,000 and labor PHP 5000, epoxy paint was PHP 2000, mechanical parts PHP 8500. Total was about PHP 31,500.
    You are probably looking at about PHP 40,000 - 45,000 for what you describe.
    Took about 2.5 weeks to build.
    I have some custom things on my boat that make it much nicer than a typical fishing boat.
    I have things I would do differently on my next boat.
    Send me a message if you want more info.

    Thanks for the info Sir, I have just started to build animal housing and good ply is essential for me, I have even thought to take it a stage further and perhaps build a wooden house, I do understand the problems with Termites here, but in my mind a house of Concrete and Hollow Block is just a huge night storage heater.
    I'm sure the savings with a well insulated wooden house using little or even no AC would more than cover the cost of an annual termite treatment? the other plus side is; I am able to do most of the work myself and not have to rely on suspect (Filipino Tradesmen?) My wife's parents Wooden House is still standing after more than 35yrs, not a bad recommendation I would say?
    Thanks again, Dave.

    Different types of wood have different different results with termites.
    Very hard woods like mahogany hold up much better to termites and rot. Coco lumber is soft and tasty to the pests. I am not sure how marine plywood holds up to termites.
    My understanding is termites and ants generally come from the ground up. Concrete slabs make a very nice habitat for all kinds of pests which have many entry points into a structure. Building a structure on stilts limits the entry points to pests and is visible and treatable. If the stilts sit in a water or liquid basin ants and termites would not enter from the ground. Make a freestanding stairway that does not touch the structure and provide a path for ants and termites. A stilt structure can have advantages in the circulation of air and provide a shaded, dry area to park a car or motorbike underneath and easy access to plumbing. Plywood is a good building material but does have some issues with off-gassing from the glues used to laminate it together. I would not use it in a closed living space, only use with lots of natural ventilation. Every type of material and design have trade-offs.

    Without specifying where you store your boat, what are the options here for safe storage of a boat?
