    just wanted to let you know ive seen you're comments about painting the anodes, and we will fix that up next time we are out at the boat. We were following what was done before and apparently that was the wrong way. I thought all they needed was a clean connection between the metal they were protecting but after doing research its clear they'll do better without paint on them, easy fix!

    While you have it out of the water you may want to consider adding some underwater lights at the back. Also, see about having a extended swim platform added. A lot easier doing those additions when the boat is out. And i can promise you they will be worth it.. you can google different swim platforms.

    It looks to me from the polished nature of the prop shaft that they have moved aft following removal of the engines allowing the non polished part to run in the bearing causing increased resistance.

    If you're repowering you'll not be keeping the props as they will most likely be the wrong pitch for your new engines. Even if your keeping them the props need to be serviced the starboard prop has heavy damage.

    I would have retracted the trim servos all the way before paint, usually the hard chrome part of the rod you want to avoid paint. Otherwise it looks killer! looking forward to following this project.

    Propellers in twin-engine boats are set to turn in opposite directions so that the torque created by each balances the other out. If both propellers turned in the same direction, you would feel it at the steering wheel--you would have to counter the torque by steering constantly in the same direction. Just wondering if you took this into consideration yet ( just keeping us on edge lol) ..marine engines one reverse rotates in twin screws.....

    Paint looks good but your waterline is going to change quite a bit if you're halving the weight of your engines. I hope you can make the gassers work but please definitely run it all by a naval architect who will let you know if the boat will still be safe to handle with this much weight and C of G change. You might want/need to do stuff like resize trim tabs or shaft angle, or even add ballast to make sure it's still stable. People die in the cabins of unbalanced motorboats that flip every year. Hopefully you don't need to ballast back all the weight you reduced to keep things upright!

    FYI support/ stablizer is called a strut. Red tint on strut is electrolysis may want to look into that. Am I right in assuming the white paint is made for props ie Prop-coat. Shafts should turn freely no transmission or shaft brakes so comparisons to other boats doesn't apply.

    Are you mainly fresh water or a mix of fresh and salt? If mainly fresh the magnesium anodes may be better. That said, the magnesium will fizz away well sharpish in salt water if you venture out to sea again!

    Those set screws just hold the Cutlass bearing in the prop strut. with the shafts pushed aft the way they are ,you probably have a corroded section of prop shaft in contact with the Cutlass bearing. push your shafts forward spray a little water on them for lubrication and see if they spin better.

    Beautiful job on the painting and restoration. Can't WAIT for the complete re-power, and don't listen to all the negative comments about changing the powerplants. You do you. I don't think any of these folks paid for the boat, or the engines you're putting in. I think it'll be badass. I've had large boats (not 40' long) with gasoline engines, and as long as they're purpose-built marine engines, and you take care of them, you'll be just fine.

    I saw you videos concerning the (upcoming) swap of motors. You mentioned that you probably would need to add some extra weight to have the same balance. However, consider to have an extra clutch from transfluid (or similar) from Italy. This would give you a hybrid running on either combustion, electricity or both and even be able to use the the electrical engines as generators... There are probably a lot of companies out there who does something similar, the only reason I know of transfluid is, that i would like to have it myself but I am not really there yet (financially:) in my own project (larger engines... mtu 12v 396). Check it out at www.transfluid.us/product/hm/ (I have no idea of quality from transfluid etc., but I like the concept).... still, you need a lot of battery power (adding a lot of weight...:)

    You should have the props checked out by a prop shop. The starboard prop has damage and may cause a vibration when you install the new engines.

I'm doing a reach out for support and/or prayers for my best friend, he is currently dying from cancer, and I am trying to help raise the money needed for burial cost. His condition has gotten worse today, and they are moving him into Hospice on Friday, the cancer is causing multiple organ failure and only machines are keeping him alive at the moment. If you cannot or do not want to donate, that's cool, just a prayer for his family and for him would work. Money raised will be used for casket, plot and headstone, around $3500 is needed. gf.me/u/y48h8t

    Besides the zincs, should also not paint the hydraulic pistons on the trim tabs. That shiny stainless steel piston should have been masked off before painting. With paint on it, when you retract the tabs all the way, the paint may damage the cylinder seals and cause a hydraulic leak.

    So if you remove a lot of weight from the boat it won’t sit at the design height in the water. This will cause a number of issues including it not handling very well. Might be worth considering. Love your work.

    Hey Chris. I love this project, and I love this Riva. I have been looking at this model for years. You are all about creating content and taking risk. You learn in the process. Good for you. This is a big undertaking and will be the source of a lot of great, educational content - for you as well as your followers. In the process you will gather new subs from the boating world. The more the merrier. Just follow through on this project. Do your LS swap, but do it properly. There is more to it than just swapping the engines. You have a lot of fiberglass and gelcoat work ahead of you. Maybe source some assistance from a boatyard and run the weight saving numbers by a naval architect. I´m super excited to see where this is going, as I have never seen an LS swap on a classic boat like this, except some purpose build wooden runabouts. Consider this: New engines => new gas tank => new props => new shaft bearings and seals => new cutlass bearings => new wiring => new electronics => new radar => new cockpit gelcoat = new upholstery => new bimini - and in the end you will have a fast and modern classic. It will not be cheap, but it will be fun!

I did not get that impression in some of the previous boat vids, hence strong comments. Frankly, i wish you the best of luck, i am curious how the weight forward pans out. In a article on straight drives and speed it turns out that it may help at speed to have weight forward. The racers of the day 1950's 60's just before stern drives used to fill ballast in the bow to level the boat at speed. Only test driving the boat will tell the whole story. Best of luck!

    Not sure what paint you used. If you leave the boat in the water year around. Use a hard paint. Ablative paint is good for a boat that is trailered. It will reactivate. It works. It's just hard paint will last longer. Seahawk paint lasted 6 seasons for me. West marine paint 2 seasons. Interlux 3 seasons.
