I am a new member, so I have just finished all of the posts in this thread. Have to say (hoping the saying translates to an Australian) that it must be hard for you to walk with the big brass ones you must have to take on this project.

I worry about drilling holes to install davits and you tear the whole thing down to the keel! What are you going to do with all of the time that you have once you finish? You won't know what to do with yourself.

Not really a truck, it's a Ute! Think El Camino. Aussies love em. I think I do too...

Your ship is looking more glorious by the day, Mr. Hendo!

So Matt, not to be the downer here, but has any thought been given to the metacentric height of this boat?

I'll be the first to say that Beebe's concept of an A/B ratio has no merit, but gosh, those are some pretty heavy scantlings on the cabin roof. Seems like a lot of mass up high.

Will you at least do a rolling period test when you launch her?

Lol g'day mate. Welcome. I'm not entirely sure what I'll do with the spare time after the novelty of AXE wears off ... Thanks for saying hi and I look froward to seeing some posts from you too :-)

I worry about this everyday mate. Im going in to it blind and will "suck it and see"

Thanks for the link. I'll be sure to have a read and do the tests. I may need to put some ballast in her by means of gravel bags but won't officially know till she's floating.

NS recognized the Riv window resemblance. Are there many Riviera boats in the US? The company, no longer under the founder Bill Barry-Cotter, had a near death financial hiccup, but has returned to profitability under third "owners" (E&EO on the history).
Great progress Matt. Keep it steady, no burnouts, with the boat or the ute.

Don't see the drink holder, must have been a designer oversight.

There is a Riviera dealer on Vancouver Island. Fairly common to see around here.

Ok well it was a very exciting day today. I took my first bit of interior to the trimmers this morning before work. I got some ideas and picked colours. I dropped off the console for him to get started on. The seams and joins will be double stitched in the copper colour thread.

The colours will look great with the contrasting blacks throughout the place as well as the gloss white kitchen and black bench tops etc

The admiral has given her approval so it's all system go now.

I'm very pleased to hear you mention "Admiral".

Great Captain deserves Great Admiral; and vise-versa!

I take it that "F" is first letter in of Admiral's name...

Yeh Flic forgave me for being a boy and not wanting to talk about anything other than the boat for four years, especially feelings and shit :-/ ....
