cool Riva pictures

Postby martinfeletto » Tue Jan 10, 2012 10:56 am

Thought to start a new topic of just cool Riva pictures. I was at Northwest Classic Boats (Dave and Rudy) and saw they had 4 Riva windshields laying out in their wood storage area.

OK, here is a "Cool" picture but somewhat depressing.

This Ariston (late 1958) was found by a diver looking for another sunken boat on Lake Dallas, Texas in the mid 1980's.

The people that found the boat tied a rope to it and drug it up out of the water on to the launch ramp.

The story goes that the boat sat there for a short time in the way of other boats being launch so the people were told to move it.

Not knowing what a rare and beautiful boat is was they decided the best thing was to remove all the hardware and burn the hull. :cry:

The story continues; after years of storing the hardware and not knowing what to do with it all of the hardware was sold for scrap metal.

What a shame for a Riva Ariston to end that way.

Thanks to Clay Thompson of Altus Oklahoma for finding out this story.

Hey Don - do you think we should encourage everyone to post pictures here from Tahoe and Sarnico?
