Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Oops my bad - I made the videos public. You should be able to see them now! I too hope that the woodshops open soon. As of right now, I am talking to one of my professors about getting access to the school's woodshop but it is not looking good. I hope we are able to take it out for sea trials once b...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Thank you! I wonder if my engine temps will get lower, once it is in the water since there will be more water moving through the system than our garden hose can provide. So far the Toyota 3-UZ seems like a good engine - I cant wait to get her out on the water. It makes me feel better to know there a...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

A couple weeks ago we took the boat out test the cooling system. After fixing two heat exchanger leaks, we were able to start the boat and fill the engine with water (temporary in case there were leaks - there were none!). We ran the boat for 45 minutes: the highest engine temp I saw was at 203 degr...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Thank you! I had thought I posted a reply earlier but I guess it didn't go through? Anyway, I love Butch Barto's boat - it has been an inspiration for me throughout the build. I love the way he did the deck fixings, exhaust, and vents. It's a beautiful boat. Thank you for the support - It turns out ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

More Photos! After I sand down those fillets, I am going to paint them to match the new color.

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi all, During all this madness we are all living through, I am fortunate to have been able to find solace in the boat building process. As many of you know, universities have switched to online classes, which means I am living at home where the boat resides. While in Quarantine I have been working ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Heyo - Another quick update. Since last posting I filled all the small gaps between the sub deck and the sides of the boat, and I have also permanently mounted the shaft log and the rudder post. The sealant really is messy stuff - unfortunately I ran out of gloves halfway through the process, and wo...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I believe that the zf63 has a ratio of 1:1.5 - but I do not know for sure. I bought it for $400 off of ebay - it shifts quite nicely, doesn't leak, and was supposedly rebuilt right before I bought it. It came from a man converting his 1987 chris craft center console to diesel. Either way, I believe ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Thank you Ozzieboat - I have been scratching my head about the heat exchanger for awhile. The only cost effective raw water pump configuration was crankshaft driven. I am making an aluminum "hockey puck" adapter that will fit inside the crankshaft pulley, allowing me to have a surface to mount the r...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi guys! Its been another year since an update has occurred. Since my last update, I have spent time in University, so I have been away from the boat for quite some time. :( But I have gotten a few small things done. I have run wires for all the accessories I can think of - and I ended up rewiring t...
