Thanks guys! I am grateful for your support. I confess having lost some sleep over getting the hull right side up while keeping it in one piece. Looking forward to the next phase. Will post as progress permits.

Re: New Member

Dave,

Thanks. The sanding process and cold weather has really slowed things down lately. I've been inspired seeing some of the completed projects on the forum. Love the finish on your Riviera!

Re: New Member

Hi,

Have made slow but steady progress since last post. Endless sanding.

Shooting primer this week and hope to have hull turned over by March. Have a few current pics and will try to get more up as progress permits.

Used a high speed air grinder with a 1/4" bit and a circular jig tacked together from thin wall tubing scrap. Will send a pic if I can find it.

Similar to the Sidepower tool in the attached photo but using materials on hand.
