Hi Folks,

Attached are some photos of my Riviera project which I have been working on for about 18 months. The frames and stringers have been made from Nyatoh, an Indonesian hardwood commonly utilised for boat building in this part of the world. The final planking laminate is Brazilian mahogany. Hopefully the planking will be completed over the Christmas holidays, followed by sheathing, painting and the long anticipated rollover.
Looking forward to the deckwork and mechanicals.
