I just completed “Riva Ridge” the last week of March.  What a fun project!  I started New Years Day and spent over 150 hours on the project over the past 3 months. I spent many evenings on the Glen.L forum checking out photos of previous Squirt builds and gleaning all the information I could about everything from transom bands to rub rails.  Thanks to all the folks who have contributed to the forum and answered my posts.

For building  photos, go to Riva Ridge Construction Pics.

P.S. For those who might be interested or don’t remember…Riva Ridge won the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes in 1972.  I named my first car, a blue 1968 Chevy Nova, Riva Ridge in his honor and I thought it would be fun to use the name again on my third wooden boat.
