Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I was basing the 13 degree strut (it was a typo I meant to do 13 degrees) off of a 14 inch prop, and 52 inches between the output shaft of the transmission and where the prop should be. Now, this would make it a 7 inch radius, plus 3 inches of clearance, and 2 inches from the output shaft to the bot...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

So since I last posted, I have applied my first coat of CPES to the boat. It is shiny, and I only put one coat on it so far; when I put it outside to put the CPES on it, it was the first time where I had seen it in natural lighting. (when we flipped it it was about to snow) and It's beautiful. I hav...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi, I have been super busy over the last few weeks so I haven't been able to post anything or do much on the boat: but my schedule frees up for the foreseeable future so I should have more time to work on it. Over the last couple days I have been fixing some cracks in the boat, and soon I should be ...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi, So a quick update, I spent 17 hours last weekend applying three coats of San dusky Dark Walnut Stains. I love the result - I decided to put one coat on the bottom - because I had done the test on one half of the bottom, and I had enough extra stain to do the other half. I do not have much time t...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi,
So while looking at the plans, me and my dad had come up with some questions. He and I were hoping that we could see boat as inspiration, to find how you did some of the little things. If anybody would be willing to let me see your boat, i would be grateful.

Thanks,
Michael

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Thank You for everything! Quick Update: we have flipped the boat back over without hurting the boat or anyone: and right now its a little but boxed in, because we are moving things around in the Garage to accommodate for the project. I have ordered Sandusky Stains and CPES from vintage trailer suppl...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I think that would depend on the engine's rotation. But either way I have some reading to do :D . There aren't that many questions right now, but i am sure more will come.

Thanks,
Michael

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I don't have an engine or transmission yet - so is there a way to fuigure out exactly where the shaft hole is going to be?

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I plan to have the boat garaged and covered when its not out on the water - I already have a trailer. Do you know if its better to put the inboard hardware on while its flipped, or afterwards? And what about drilling the shaft hole?

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Well foreseeably, in the next few months, I plan to use the Glen L Fiberglassing kit, Either Interlux or Sandusky Stain, West Marine Epoxy (for the coats after the fiberglassing is done), and Interlux compass clear varnish. Is there an advantage to two part Polyurethane instead of Varnish? Also, One...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I have looked around online, and I haven't been able to find much information about the Sandusky Stain. I might switch over to the Interlux stain, as this is definitely water based, and is proven to work well with epoxy. Or I might just use CPES. Thank You for letting me know about it, before I foun...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

We live in Northern Ohio - we will be using the boat on Lake Erie and Lake Chautauqua - but we have relatives in Tennessee, so it is very probable that I show up at the gathering, but less probable that I will be able to bring my boat. The trailer isn't in the best condition - but I plan to fix it a...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Well it is one thirty in the morning, and I have just finished the stands that the riviera will rest on for the next couple months before we flip her back over. So far, I have ordered the stain - I decided to use Sandusky Wood Filler Stains - and I have done research on like hull paint, fiberglassin...

Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hi, I am Michael and I currently starting my build on a Glen-L Riviera. I went back and forth trying to decide which plan I should build, and we decided that bigger would be better. (Safer) So, since I will be going off to college somewhat soon, we decided to buy a partially completed hull from Flor...
