Riviera frame 3

Riviera frame 3 the plans show frame 3 may have to be trimmed to allow the motor to fit, I am thinking of doing
that before fitting the frame , motor will be 350 chev type . if i trim the floor ply inside the stringers down to the
timber frame would that be enough, I thought it would be easier to do now than later on in the boat.
the build is going well i should be fitting chines,sheers battons in a couple of days, i will post pics when i work out
how to drive this computer,

HERE HERE.

Ok, yes you will have to trim Frame 3 just above the keel so that your oil pan will clear. The engine compartment is tight - very tight for our modern engines. If you are using a carbed engine you will probably have to provide some modification to the hatch to clear the air intake. Some EFI engines fit barely. Mine has less than .5" under the pan and NO clearance on the spark arrestor.

I would not trim the frame now. Is is not difficult to trim what needs to be done later. You will want this frame to be a solid as possible as you build your hull. Once the hull is done, then the frame can be trimmed. Also, you will not really know what you need to cut until you lower the engine and mark the frame accordingly.

That sounds like an old fashioned fellowship dinner. Please pass the rolls, Dave.

Nice work.

Man, every time I see a big shop like that, I get jealous.

Actually that was the "beast feast" a couple of weeks ago. The men of our church actually hold a service specifically to address the needs of men> Last night we dealt with the stress of the workplace. All is good.

Old Aussie Riviera build

No message with photo of Riviera frames still learning to use computer I am getting there,
as you could see my build frame is made of steel, I have designed it so I can jack the whole thing up 500 mm so it is
easier for me to work on without bending over ,back injury, I have also built a rotisserie i will be able to turn it on its
side and roll it right over when hull is finished.
I will try to send pics of jigs i made up to hold battons while glue sets, and pre bending battons chines shears,

thanks Dave for the advice,

Peter
