  • How long is your boat

  • I have watched these videos out of their intended order and it breaks my heart to think that at this stage the starboard engine was probably in good condition but the seeds of its doom were there and someone knew! A couple of hours work could have saved it if you guys were just told. I still hope that you do recondition the old engine over time because after all the gasoline fuelled fun you can retain the option to realise the full value of that beautiful boat with its vintage but practical diesels.

  • You need to Vapor Home all that corroded metal. Works much faster and the finish will be better. You can do it by hand, but just take it all off and pay someone $50-100 to VHT it = much less work and a better result. Maybe a minute of VHT for each piece.

  • I'd recommend you trying to use either Fusion 360 or Onshape for CAD Design. Both are pretty simple to use, and I believe low cost. I personally love Solidworks but a license for that is pretty expensive. Good Luck with the build!

  • "Hard will be the learning curve with this one," says Yoda. Zinc plated chain instead of galvanized, home made anchor (they are precision devices when made correctly), 3/8" nylon line for an anchor rode (not a misspelling) on a 44' boat, wooden box assembled with staples that are almost certainly made of carbon steel just waiting to rust, depth transducer seems to be attached to an interior surface instead of the outer hull (maybe I'm wrong). The zinc lighting fixtures will be shiny for a while but corrosion is like cancer; hard to eliminate. You need to connect with some people that know as much about boats as you do cars. Oh, wait. They've already commented below. Boats live in a very unforgiving environment but at least you're removed form the salt until you head toward the ocean. Seriously, a few mistakes early on will make you realize why marine grade items are so expensive compared to household and automotive grade items. You will soon value the higher quality items and want nothing else. Owning 17 boats over the years in a saltwater environment taught me a great deal.

  • you need some advise on this ... let me tell you why 1) that boat is the rollsroyce of the boats. Riva is just an extraordinary brand and its tradition is centenary. Make your homework about the brand and you would be surprise. As a matter of fact a riva yacht cost 2-3 times more than any equivalent brand. dont make weird adaptations bro !! buy real marine stuff , no home made anchors and that kind of stuff !! I repeat, this is a rollsroyce , not a 89 chevy malibu you dont uses shoes on board !!! change all bulbs for LED bulbs. Nice chartplotter. your team is working the boat as a Mack truck. It is not a Mack truck. Some riva boat, specially the classic wood ones are sold really expensive. Try to handle this professional and according the kind of boat. Look advise from some local picky anal yacht fan like me, so you mix his knowledge on the boat with your ability to put things to work !!! Your team can be good for repair cars and so. This is not a car, and it is WAY more dangerous when they fail. Look for the right people to do the repairs and put the necessary money on the project. The final product and the personal reward would be immense ... promise you that ! Would love to be able to help you !! Cheers !

  • Bruv DIYing an anchor will void your insurance. Saying "it is not worth money" is like saying "brembo/willwood brakes are not worth the expense". That anchor in a basket might be overkill for a row boat, but in terms of storm resistance for a boat your size... I'm not a sailor... but... Come on man, that is essential safety equipment. Use the proper equipment.

  • Seeing how you handle the whole anchor situation shows how you don’t know what your doing. The chain is what keeps the boat in place not the anchor meaning you need a considerable larger amount of chain then 20 links🤷‍♂️. The anchor just helps the chain set. Secondly having a stern anchor for overnight mooring is a recipe for disaster. The boat needs to be able to swing with tides/currents. High risk of capsizing! I don’t know how this boat is still floating with someone of your knowledge maintaining it!!🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  • Please for the love of god do not drop a bow AND stern anchor, its incredibly unsafe and dramatically increases your risk of capsizing. Also when fishing with anchors you only use a bow anchor. Please please take a boating course 🙏🏼 Much love and please stay safe!! Boating is dangerous!

    MikeMikeUukausi sitten
    • There's lots of applications for stern anchors. Obviously you wouldn't want to that out in open water in big surf, but on a calm river or bay it can be done with no risk. Don't talk about things of which you don't know

  • Anchor aft is a bad idea. Non-galvanized steel is a bad idea. On a larger boat, length of chain is important on the bow anchor. The actual weight of the chain does most of the work. Merchant Marine Officer.

And those lamps in the roof, were they really in chrome? Looks stainless on the video?! Especially when polished?! That gelcoat looks great though!👍
