Default Wood is good.

Still fighting with health issues but got a new project into the shop last week. Here are a few picks of it as well as a pic of it's twin that I did about 28 years ago.
Last pics shows what it should look like when finished.
I have started to take out the approx. 1800 brass screws that holds the bottom together.

Me too, Torchie. Glad to see you are back at it. Old wood boats are beautiful.

I guess your truck must have found a permanent home after all the reselling.

Do you have the bow piece Torchie? or do you have to fabricate?

If you are talking about the "Cut water" which is the chrome or stainless piece that fits over the bow. I believe that my Bro-in-law has it smallfoot. The Rivieras had a 2 piece cut water as compared to other models that had a 1 piece. You can see the 2 piece cut water in the pic below.
As I recall, when he took the boat home it had all of the hardware with it. But that was 25 years ago.... LOL
Years ago I did a 24 " CC Holiday and we had to fab a new stainless cut water for that one. It never really did fit quite right but I was probably the only one that noticed.
