Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Wow! I haven't seen that Tahoe before! Its gorgeous! I originally was going to do a utility design, but I backed out because there weren't utility versions of the larger inboard runabouts. Is it possible to modify the riviera to be a Utility? It would be great to be able to carry the extra people/ha...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

And these are more photoshopped pictures. I think the boats look pretty good with painted topsides, especially the Tahoe.

Thank you!

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hello All, Its been a few months, but a lot of setup has happened. I have been able to secure 3 weeks at the end of the year to work on the boat as a School Project. This means I get all day every day for three weeks to work on the boat, which is amazing. This also gives me a deadline: in 4 weeks, I...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I really tried - but there is no way to do it without going all the way down to a bare hull. If I do decide to paint (which is the way I am leaning currently) I would probably go with black, as I think thats the most physically attractive option. I don't think that its possible to save without going...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Just another update with some bad news. After the boat completely cured, the spots became worse. On one side there is barely anything, but on the other side, there are huge cloudy streaks everywhere. Unfortunately, after sanding the spots down as much as I could without going through the fiberglass,...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Thank You - I ended up applying the fiberglass today - it was a long day, with a few complications. The end result looked Okay - I hope it improves with Varnish. I ended up with these cloudy white patches in the epoxy. (hard to see in 2nd photo but obvious in real life) Do you have any idea why this...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hello all,
Sunday I am applying fiberglass, and I was wondering whether or not I needed to do a Seal coat before I applied the fiberglass for the Bond coat, since I already sealed the hull using CPES.

Thanks,
Michael

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I haven't done much since the last post - I cut the fiberglass to size and I figured out how all the pieces will fit together to cover the boat. I am also building a fiberglass and carbon fiber guitar out of the leftover materials too small to use on the boat - Its a project for school. I have decid...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I have just finished the Shaft hole - I have attached pictures. I ran into a total of 3 screws, and It did splinter a little bit on the inside at the end, but it seems okay. The hole also seems to be ever so slightly off center - to the port side - But I believe it should be okay. I plan to move on ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Alright - so, after many setbacks, I have finally started drilling the shaft hole. I started last night, around 11:00 and gave up around 1:00. I set everything up and started to drill until I ran into a screw - I had to chisel it out to continue. By this point, It was around 12:30 - Because the scre...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi everyone, So far my summer has been even more busy than the school year. But I have run into many problems involving the drilling of the shaft hole. The most recent and by far the largest problem is that I ordered the wrong strut. It did not have enough drop, and I found this out after I had chis...

Re: Olds cool down

I'm sorry to hear about Old's Cool going down. I wish you the best of luck finding and retrieving it. Is there any news? Have you located it?

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi, Okay so quick update - I have done some light sanding, filled small holes/chips in the epoxy, and applied the second coat of CPES. I actually ran out of CPES; I only have the transom and the lower part of the port side to do. I have done more driveshaft calculations, and I ordered a 14 degree st...
