Here is the picture of the slipway under construction. Wiskun is tied to the side where a hole is dug deep enough for the keel. Once Wiskun is hauled out, it is my understanding that this area will be filled and cemented (for boat storage).

ps - decided to continue under this same topic

I believe this is the winching system for the slipway - to be installed.

Hi Ellen,

Great Pictures - very useful for the future - I note the rails for the bogies to travel on .(purple arrows) any idea how far apart ? Looks like a good design for hauling out a multihull.

Also noted with the green arrow, the depth - It will be interesting to see what the maximum draft will be for a keel boat ?

Hi Richard,

The distance between the rails is 5m and the depth is 2 ft. The cemented area is 6 m wide. I understand that the rails are for the ferries (or fishing boats) and the cemented area is for smaller boats and pleasure crafts. Wiskun will be hauled out on the cemented area on the cradle by the trailer system (similar to picture). We have a 2 metre draft and the entrance to the slipway is 3 metres at high tide.

Your description on hauling out cats will work, but how will it be transported to its storage area? It is ok if it stays on the rails for bottom painting and minor maintenance work, however it has to move somewhere when the rails are to be used by another boat. I am not sure what the plans are here, but maybe they will extend the rails for lateral movement?

Cheers,

ellen

Thanks Ellen,

Great information, and my future home is looking more, and more promising. I know the local talk for some time has been they would put in a marina. It is great to see a facility with rails going in also. I thought I would have to go north to Cebu for bottom work. Davao being such a fantastic typhoon hole

This is so good to see other boat people here that are based in Davao. I moved to Davao a year ago and am currently renting a house in Insular Village Phase One which is next to the Insular Waterfront Hotel. Last year I discovered there is a "Boat Club" right behind the village which prompted me to find a boat. The boat club is actually just on shore covered boat parking with a launch and retrieval service. Last year there were maybe ten boats there. Now it is full with maybe 25 and expanding fast. I still hardly ever see other owners as most don't use their boats very often.

My boat only arrived two weeks ago and needs a lot of work but it is usable.

I will quite likely take out some family members tomorrow (August 3) so I will pass by the Marina to see how it is progressing.

Davao is set to become a boating haven due to the safe waters, beautiful reefs, crystal clear waters, good climate etc. Safety, law and order, etc are far better in Davao than they are in Manila.

Just an update on the boatyard - hole is dug and prepared for the winching system. Slow-going but moving forward.

The boatyard area is now partly cemented and a machine shop erected.

I went past there last week but saw no sign of your boat. I guess you were out sailing but not in the area where we were. Then again maybe I am thinking of a different marina under construction. Is yours on the northern coast of Samal Island?

Yes - the marina is on the northern coast of Samal Island.

Marina update:

Construction of the floats is ongoing - there are 72 finished pieces and 8 more ready for cementing. Digging in the marina area has been halted as there is no place to dump the sand. Hence the breakwater for the resort area is being contructed, and once finished the bulldozer/dump truck can then access the area to unload the sand where an island will be built for the spa.

I understand that they plan for a 10 ft depth in the marina. Power pedestals have been ordered and are probably in-transit over.

So I did get the right one after all. I was out in the gulf yesterday and passed by the vehicular ferry terminal. It looks like they are building another marina right by the vehicular ferry but that is on the west coast near the narrowest point of the channel. There was a large sailing boat moored there.
