Glad to hear you worked out your steering problems. :D

I thought about naming mine "Twenty Feet" not because it's almost 20' feet long, but because it looks real good from twenty feet :lol: :lol:

Does anyone know how the Riviera & Gentry would compare handling to the modern ski boats?
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

The Riviera is just a Monaco stretched by two or three feet. So it should be the same as Garry described.

I know this is an older post but I thought that the Monaco, Riveara & Monte Carlo had redesigned bottom for more see worthy assault on the water
