Wow! It looks great!

thanks for sharing. Please post pictures when you put in the water.

What part of the world are you from? Where is your home lake/body of water?

I have recently developed sickness. RIVA. acutely i got this boat in 1992. My second Riva is Olympic, no 253.
i use my boats in sea water, all year round, and now I want to get another and my wife thinks I become crazy.
New picture is my wife on my Olympic.We have the best sea in the Med, like glass.
