SeaPea's Riviera build

Postby SeaPea » Fri Jan 27, 2012 7:35 pm

From what I've read around here, I need to turn a pile of timber into a chair, before I can turn another pile into a boat.
Chair done, now to start on the boat.

Bottle needs to be in hand to drink, cupholders are for procrastinators. :lol: Great looking thinking chair for the boat shop. Trust me, it will get well used.

Now that is having the priorities in order.

I will guarantee you SeaPea that you will use it a lot. Keep it close at hand and cooler even closer. You will sit and ponder more than actually building.

You can almost throw out everything you know about woodworking for you about to learn a whole new set of skills. :lol:

Now I know this is not my "Riviera", but now the Paddle board is finished, I can officially start on the next project! My "workshop" is now clear for "insert name here" Riviera!

My timber and plywood are coming, and I have a source of "Matai" that I'm thinking of using for final planking & deck.

How many times did you fall before you learned how to "walk on water"

I actually stayed dry Dave! There were a few inelegant times when I had to kneel down when ski boats went past!

:D

Sea Pea, is that hollow or solid?

I Still don't get the attraction of SUP, but they sure are popular

It's hollow UPS.

It's much harder than kayaking at this stage, but a good workout! The water was very calm when I went out yesterday, the test will be on bigger wave days...I don't expect to stay dry then! :(

Ok, it's the way the old surfboards were made....I still have some old Boatbuilder magazines from the early 1960's with wooden longboard plans

I saw some plans on the Chesapeake site.

A bunch of us need to make some this summer and bring to the G. That would be a hoot!!!
