I know of a modeller building his first boat [balsa] using white glue [PVA]... Is PVA for boating ok OR what balsa glue should be used??  please? What type of water proofing I mean??

Balsa glue is preferable but if hull is given a coat of Dope or polyester resin PVA will suffice.

I normally use Aliphatic Resin when I have to glue Balsa (not my favourite material Rolling Eyes). It is more waterproof than straight PVA, but I still ensure the balsa has a resin or paint cover as well.
