How did you make those cut outs for the bow thruster?

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.

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.

Regards,

Steve Hansen

I have a suspicion that it will look a lot bigger after the flip. Really looking forward to seeing this.

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!

Regards,

Steve Hansen
