    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!

      @sledbc right! This guy is ignoring everyone who knows boats. He painted the props 🤦‍♂️ he's going to have to tune and balance those props for the new engines anyway. Plus... You don't paint props

    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.

    Delete if not allowed, trying all I can to make sure my best friend is sent off the right way. 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.

    to all the comments on painting the zinks will cause a loss in their effectiveness...not true at all...2 or 3 days in the water they will be bare zink again...just wanted to comment on the red that was on your rudder that you mentioned "could it be rust" actually is the same type of black paint you put on the hull, its called Red Iron oxide Primer, typical bottom paint...your comment section is ridiculous, everyone should chill out and might acually learn something...

    Those Tabs are Stainless Steel... those set screws hold your cutlass bearing in place and no they get tighter because of angle and weight, replace them ! oh and if you didn’t know you only have 30 days to put that paint in water or it dies... That aluminum paint just turned all that bronze into a battery... Dude put the tools down and get someone from the marine industry help you !

  16. Z06ified

    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!

    Thanks for lsx vid, the vid shows that you have indeed a head on your shoulders and thought out you options. 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. Seahawk paint is the 💩

    Hope you're going to move the stands and paint where they used to be before it goes made in the water - unless you already did and I missed it worry. Also, make sure your engines are expertly aligned and shimmed - you would anyone I'm sure. Between that and having my props blueprinted, all my vibrations vanished :)

    Check the prop seals whilst the boat is out of the water. They may not have been changed in years and the rubber may deteriorate whilst it's out of the water. Also could be the reason for the prop not spinning

    Are You Replacing The Cummins Turbo Diesels with BIG Block Gas / Petrol Engines ? Most People Would Go in the Other Direction, Gas to Turbo Diesel. 1) Your Fuel Costs Will Multiply By MANY Times. for Every 1 Gallon of Diesel Use, You Wil Use 2, 3, or 4 Gallons of Gas + Severe CUT in You Travel Range. + I Believe 1 US Gal' of Boat Gas Costs More Than 1 US Gal' of Boat Diesel in USA. 2) Safety = In-Board Petrol / Gas Engines + BIG Fuel Tanks a VERY Small Leak of Petrol / Gas = a LOT of Fuel Vapour + Air = BIG Potential for Explosion & Fire

    I just watch these videos for the "face palm" moments. Anodes are sacrificial and yet you painted right over them?? Then to top it off you've painted the cylinder shafts. Good bye seals. Mate you really need to do some proper research before you touch things ie the set screws that are holding your bearings to stop them from spinning with the shaft. 3 "face palms" from 1 video, about average I'd say.

    you should get Prop Speed for your shaft and props. If applied correctly it'll last longer than antifouling, and also stays nice and slippery. Any fouling on the bottom and shafts/props will DRAMATICALLY decrease your speed and efficiency

    The set screws don't pinch onto the shaft, they hold a thing called a cutless bearing in place. You should go ahread and change them, especially if you're repowering, you're going to have to probably redo the engine bed and you will have to do the alignment (unless you just change the engine and mount it to the original gearbox, then you'll just have to align the engine to the gearbox, well either way you'll have to do something). The prop could be hard to turn because the cutless bearings are old and the shaft looks like it's detached because you have it pulled out a little, so if there's play in between the cutless bearings and shafts, it would kinda pinch on it because of the weight. Either way, they're relatively cheap, and you;'re going to repower and have to perfect the alignment, so you want to eliminate that possible source of vibration while you're out of the water and are doing this. Also if they're 30 years old, there are more modern materials that will insure your shaft's longevity.
