Chris Craft Riva
Building a Chris craft Riva from scratch seemed a good idea.. I use three ply scrap wood costing three euros fifty cents so far.But I have in stock rolls of two inch wide veneer which I wrap around the stringers. So far it's three thicknesses thick which I feel is enough. Next stage is a hard sanding then a varnish before the 100 and things to do to it.
Any comments appreciated and ideas.

NickW's boat's - Posted: 3 months ago by NickW
My three latest aquisitions: a pleasure launch, a speed boat and a landing craft rigged out for the Vietnam war. The landing craft is ready to go, as is the speed boat (speed boats not my thing to be honest) but the pleasure launch will be a project. I intend to replace the upper cabin, strip the paint and maybe just varnish the hull, add some planking for the deck plus it needs all the running gear....should keep me busy for a while

This is a kit river steamer - broken. Wood construction, metal accessories. Nice building good preprocessed parts. I cabins on one side left open to see what they contained.👍

A good evening's sailing. Boats looked better the darker it got.

Good to see an onwater pic. Have you tried in less calm conditions?

Been a while since i last posted, not had much time over the winter. I will need to find a boat club later in the year to try the boat out.

Response by Northumbrian on the 2nd Mar 2017
that is a great test tank 👍
Response by figtree7nts on the 2nd Mar 2017
Seems, as if everybody has the same test tank.
I know I do! Unless you have a model 2 metres in length. 😊
Response by Dave M on the 2nd Mar 2017
Most of my model are too big for a domestic test tank so I build a simple trough in one corner of a sunken patio with plastic sheeting over a wooden frame. Only needs a small volume of water to float the vessel and ballast to waterline. Far less grief involved!
