    Hi, im new here.
    im planing to build a 30ft (beam 14ft) powercat with outboarders in the philippines.
    Im from switzerland. my english its not really good.

    Im verry thanksful to any answer.

    Hi benny 333,and a big welcome from Australia,have a look at the schionning website in Australia they do a good powercat just like you describe. I'm doing a powercat out of a timber called KIRI, similar to balsa but does'nt rot, similar to western red cedar but lighter. Have a look at pics in album. I can give more details if interested

    have fun
    Dave

    Benny 333, glad to be of help. Schionning usualy use Duflex epoxy /balsa composite but I spoke to them a while ago about doing a Kiri version with a positive response.
    Google "Highpoint timbers" for more info on KIRI. It actualy is imported into Australia from China, so phillipines seems to be on the way. Also a lot of the fiberglass and resins in Aus these days seem to have originated in China, could be a great dollar saving for you.
    Just be cautious, I have heard that a lot of the boat yards up there don't have experience in this style of lightweight construction, so do your homework.Again only what I've heard.

    If you have found one let me know,I would consider a trip up for a fitout on my 50 footer

    Happy hunting
    Dave

    Hello Benny 333,

    Boatshop in the Philippines would appear to have the expertise you need. Mike Allen is American http://www.boatshop.com.ph/about/index.html

    Next week in Annapolis USA the 35th Annual Powerboat Show starts http://www.usboat.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=15&Itemid=34

    The list of exhibitors is very useful as many list their websites.

    The Professional BoatBuilder is on-line and you would gain a great deal of knowledge for your project and whether the craft will need CE certification for importing to Euro waters. http://www.proboat-digital.com/proboat/200610/

    Good luck

    Pericles
