Re: Swim platform and side port exhaust

I added mine after the construction phase just above the water line using detachable brackets as well. I lag bolted right into the end of the stringers thru the stern.

Re: New Member from Victoria, Aus

I don't know what it is about the Aussie's but ya'll seem to love the Riviera/Monaco. There are a number of them being built there.

So that means I have to visit all of you real soon. :D

Re: Dave Lott

Well dang. I am most humbled that there is actually a thread about me. I am still here. Not kicking as nearly as high as I use to. Yes, I did have a setback. It was quite major and one year ago this week. Thank you for reminding me. The result was losing all three of my businesses. Oh well, I have b...

Re: Riviera Gussets

Leave the motor stringers exactly as the plans call for. The were set at this spacing for the old motors. The new motors such as my PCM Excalibur fit just inside them. Further your frames sit on this when you are building your hull as specific spacing and settings. If you mess with the spacing of th...

Re: Riviera Gussets

While 3/4 is quite heavy, there is no issue whatsoever for you to use it.

Adding fillers between the gussets is a common practice for both asthetics and reducing a "capture" point. In fact, most of the high end customs will fill this spot in.

Re: Encapsulating confusion.

Clear Penetrating Epoxy produced by Smith's It is essentially a modified epoxy that soaks deeply into the pores of the wood. It costs about $60 per quart and will do you whole boat inside and out. If you plan on painting or glassing over then get yourself some CPES from Jamestown Distributors. Get y...

Re: Encapsulating confusion.

This is a rather easy answer. Many are now using CPES first. It is very thin and watery. So a little goes a long ways. Apply three coats or until the wood will not soak up any more. Be sure to stain first for this seals the stain and fills the wood pores. Then 2-3 coats of regular epoxy. While there...

Re: Using thickened epoxy for sharp transom edge

Yes, but it will be easier to damage. I did my final sharp edge with thickened epoxy and have had to do one small repair. Otherwise no issues.
