Sure Ted I was mostly kidding about the 7 people.

Is that the dinghy aboard in your avatar?
Yes she's a hauler compared to mine.
A long shaft OB could be done it's fairly easy to extend a 6hp OMC and I have one. Like to keep the CG low .. especially on a very small boat. Would like to use the little 4hp though and a long shaft would be too long I'm think'in.
But it's hard to put back a transom cutout. I'm sure that's what Sunchaser had in mind.
Some day I'd like to see more pics of Riviera.

Eric,
No, the one in the avatar is a 9 footer.
I wanted a larger one.
I don't think the weight of the two and a half Yamaha
will make much difference, especially as I don't intend
to test the carrying capacity limit.

Marty,
WAY too rough to be a "Courting Machine". As you can see from these close up pics. I plan to refinish the gunwales, paint the interior, clean and polish the hull, remove the keel trunk, cut the transom down 2" for the OB and perhaps install some cleats and engine controls.

Here are the pics that show much detail of the gunwales. (Too much haha) My other little boat (10') has very lightweight gunwales compared to this much heavier boat. Not planing to make her yacht club presentable .. more like nice work boat. I may even try Cetol on the Gig. Never used it before. A friend has a Willard w Cetol cap rails and it's about what I've got in mind for the Gig. The next owner can go the courting machine route.

Sunchaser,
If you're looking you can see that the seats are air chambers. Saw no signs of leakage.

Thanks for the close up pictures Eric . Now I think I will just add some more laminations and beef up my gunwales instead of trying to make a complete new rail cap . Since I took off the funky padded rail I need to add more width .The staples were all coming loose and it was torn in a few places . A new rail cap was getting too complicated and I'm not sure I had enough teak anyway . You've got a great boat that should serve you well.
