    Posted: 04/14/2009 at 8:26pm

I have finally got started on my rebuild of my 1986 Riveria Cruiser 24 footer. I started with a 20 footer but realized very quickly a 24 ft pontoon was much better. Plus the one I have now is in much better condition overall thenthe 20 ft I had orginally & traded for the 24 ft.

The weather has finally got to the point where I can get outside & start tearing it down so I can begin cleaning & start the redecking & carpet. My son & I tore it down to bare metal in about 6 hrs. The old orginal deck screws surprisingly came out very easily except for 3 whcih we made short work of. I"m posting some pictures of the pontoon before we started & were we are at present. More pics to follow as I progress as weather permits.

Here"s a few more of the teardown.

Here is the inside of the logs that still need to be cleaned. Kleen Bright will do a great job on them.

New furniture is not in the budget right now but I bought some good used furniture with the rotoglass(?) bottoms that will work just fine once my wife covers them using Linda"s Lounge idea of beach towels. I'll be rewiring everything making my own wiring harnesses along with a onboard 3hp 1000 generator for onboard chargers & a few other things I want on the boat. Installing 3 batteries with a new VRS switch from ezacdc as well as their fused switch panel. I'm quite capable of making it myself but I am spending far too much time making things myself when it's a lot easier to just go ahead & buy it already made & get it over with. All wiring underneath the deck will be enclosed in waterproof greenfield or "flex" as some people refer to it. Everything going through the deck will be sealed with 3M 5200 sealer.

A new helm & possibly a new NFB steering system if I can't get my steering wheel off to replace it with a Destroyer wheel I got off of craigslist. Planning on a am/fm/cd player with 4 speakers, a good trolling motor, 2 fishing chairs on the bow, a built in changingroom/porta poti & adding a stainless steel bbq grill. Can"t go out on the water without a bbq grill so I can cook all the BIG fish I am going to catch huh?   I'll be installing bigger gas tanks (28 plus 18 gal) along with a water seperator along with an emergency tool kit using new Army ammo boxes I got at a yard sell. Got to have someting to work with to make repairs if needed. And last but not least all new navigation & docking lights from pontoonstuff.com & some new bow fencing to replace the ones that are missing.

I'm in the process of tuning up & repainting my Johnson 70 & got new decals for it off of eBay. Found a brand new in the box Johnson remote engine contoller with new 18 ft cables to go with it that will be installed off of cragislist. New spare prop is on order now. So many things I want & so little money to get it all.

Now that I have finally learned how to resize & post pictures on the forum I will be submitting more as I progress. Did I fail to say at 67 yrs of age I am having the time of my life?  Well.....I am.

I hear ya   The only thing I"m disappointed in is my increasing inability to do things that I"ve never had problems doing before but all these surgeries are taking their toll on me. If it hadn"t been for scbadiver I"d be in real trouble. Got him coming down next weekend. I didn"t realize at the time my hand and elbow surgery was going to really hamper me for the next year. Its been 4 months and I still can"t stand the weight of a plastic sack with 3-5 lbs, can"t grasp a round object with any grip and then I"ve hurt my back again and I"m only 60. I feel like 80 . Don"t have balance worth a darn, but I sure enjoy looking at the progress of everyone else"s work. One thing I can do though is polish if it EVER stops raining. Keep on trucking Les. Think the worst thing I ever did was quit being as active but bad heart and arties will do that to ya. Course me and you both will have the time of our lives once we get it all done won"t we . For the 1st time I"m actually considering renting a slip so we can get more use of our toon. Wonder if some of places rent for 6 months instead of by the year?

When I can"t do things as easy as I used to do I get mad at myself & get more determined to do it & wind up sore as the dickens for days. lol I don"t know how to NOT stop & rest but Old Uncle Arthritis has a way fo getting attention pretty fast sometimes so I understand perfectly where youare coming from.

I"m very fortunate in that I live maybe 6 miles from the nearest small lake (9 miles long) & 70 miles one way to the largest lake in the VA/NC area (850 miles of shoreline) which is called John H. Ker Resovier aka Buggs Island to most people. Not to metion the James River runs right through the middle of Richmond all the way to the Chesepeake Bay. So I have my pick of lots of water to go to without having to travel a long distance. I am looking forward to spending MORE time on the water this year then ever before.

Pictures?? Did you say picutres? Besides the expert information given on this site the pictures are the next best thing. Kinda like the old Sears & Roebuck catalogue huh?

Ha, yeah, I suppose that"s true. I"ve got water close by, but the only dock gets awful crowded real quick and seems the boaters there are extremely reckless (just my opinion) and its only 20 minutes away, but an hour to launch and more to load if somebody doesn"t cut in front of you and the seadoo"s blocking everything. I"m more willing to rent a slip that"s two hours away at our favorite fishing place than I am in my own state. Think I"ll call and see how much it is

I hear ya Charles. The lake that is 20 minutes from me is like the one you are describing outy your way. Not to mention it is very sahllow in places so a depth finder is a MUST HAVE.  The ONLY time I would think of going is during the weekdays when everyone else is working. Only then could you enjoy the water & nautre without having to fight your way to get in or out of the water. Since the James River is so long & large with lots of historical scenery to enjoy as well as very good fishing, I"ll spend more time on it then on the little lake closed by.

Parts of the James River above Richmond are not suited for pontoon boats or boats that draw very much water due to rapids. Below Richmond & on to the Chesepeake Bay one will not have any trouble with navigating the river & there is so much history surrounding the James River. Great plantations to see, huge cyprus trees, bald eagles flying overhead, historical Williamsburg, Jamestown & so  much more to see from the water. Great areas to camp out overnight if that"swhat you want to do not to mention plenty of good places to dock at for more refined eating. And NOT crowded at all depending on when you go.

I"m trying to get the boat finished before I am unable to climb abroad the pontoon & turn the wheel as the arthritis is getting real bad these days. Working on the pontoon is good "medicine" in many ways & bad in other ways. I don"t think about the bad effects. I think more about getting it done & enjoying it while I still can. If only it would stop all this raining I could be done in less then 30 days. I have never enjoyed working on anything as much as I do the pontoon.

Thanks peppyjd. I"m trying my best. It"s more work then I thought but it"s worth every minute. With everyone"s help I "might" make it. Now that I have "finally" leaned how to post pics on the forums, the rest is downhill.  Don"t ever believe an old dog can"t learn something new.   It might take a while but sooner or later I learn.

I had hoped to do more work on it again today but of course Mother Nature had other plans in store. It"s raining again & the temperature is 47 degrees. Looks I will have to wait until the weekend AGAIN to do anything else.  It"s rained hard here for the past 2 days ina  row. The rivers & lakes are getting higher & higher. That"s a good thing huh?

Hi Les,  looking great.  I was making good progress too until the rain came in.  I am going to try and get mine done to do a test run tomorrow, supposed to be in the 70"s. Where do you put in on the James?  We have only done Lake Anna with our old cuddy cabin.  We are looking forward to using the pontoon this year.

Thanks to everyone for th eincouragement. I NEED it.

Hi 2ltime. I put in the James River at Dutch Gap which is beside the VA Power coal fired plant just off Rt 10 in Chester. Take I-95 south to Chester, take Rt 10 South, turn right off the ramp then go to the first light & turn left. You can"t miss it. It has good ramps & plenty of parking EXCEPT for the weekends & then it gets crowded fast. Plus there is NO ramp fee. I usually take my bass boat there on the week days. You can go all the way to Va Beach on the river from that point. You don"t want to put in much farther north then this as is gets really shallow & the rapids start above there.

The weather man is calling for some nice weather through the weekend & I plan on getting everything cleaned up & ready to install the deck & rails again. I"m not going to make it "real purty" right now as I want to get out on the water & have some fun. Come winter I will fix it all up to make it look better & do what I want to then.

It"s recommneded to leave a 1/8 inch gap between each sheet to allow for expansion. Other then this one requirement, put it down like any other plywood & install what ever floor covering you want to use. Hoepfully I can get it installed over the weekend & take some pics of the deck. It"s going to need to warm up plenty before I go outside to do it. It"s 30 degrees here this mornign with the temps (so they say on the weather channel) going to the mid 70s by noon. Here"s hoeping they are right.

Keep it up!  I"m looking forward to seeing the finished product on the James!!!  My wife saved up some money and we were just about to order some new seats from (where else?)pontoonstuff.com, when I noticed the "minor" seep of water under the exhaust manifold turned into a torrent! So...$4,800 for a new 5.0 liter Mercruiser!! Ouch!! The previous owner admitted to overheating it pretty bad a few years ago, but I think he didn"t bother to properly winterize it when he laid it up for two years.  She ran great all last year, but the mechanic said I was boating on borrowed time.  The engine should arrive on Tuesday, so maybe I won"t miss a lot of the season.

Still gonna get the seats, though.  The wife said so.

Hey Les,  Where did you buy your plywood? Did you find it local?  I think I will have mine ready for a test run this friday.  Weather should be great.

Les,

I used to have a rivera cruiser.  I scrapped the boat but actually have some parts left off it.  I Have the aluminum rails that fit on the front corners, some of the posts that hold the canopy up, the"Rivera Crusier" steering wheel and the brown captains seat that matches the one in your picture. I also have the aluminum brackets that hold the gas tanks.   I live in Salisbury Maryland and you are welcome to anything you want. 

Also, you should mount pieces of plywood between the end of the pontoon and the transom.  On our boat the water would splash on the motor as it came out between transom and the end of the pontoon.  We run in salt water and the carb linkage would corrode.  Deflecting the water made a big difference.

I finally have the pon toon stripped to bare frame. The deck & deck screws came out very easily compared to all the horror stories I have read from others. The logs & frame are all cleaned & everything is ready to put it back together again except the RAIN just won"t let up long enough to get it done.

I ordered a "boat load" of stuff from pntoonstuff.com & it all arrived this past week. New NFB steering system, new 20 Jasmine carpet, deck screws, joint tape for the plywoood, gate latches, privacy curtain AND to save myself time & work I also ordered the EZACDC Deluxe Switch Panel & pontoon wiring harness. Also got a nice fiberglass helm top & Faria gauges off of eBay. Will be picking up a sheet of AZEK next week to build the base of the helm & a few other minor items. AND I bit the bullet & bought a new 24 ft Genisis Pontoon tandem axle trailer with guides, brakes & ladder mounted on the tongue with spare tire.

***put space between text and pic - also added more to title of topic***

Les, I put your nym on the topic so we"d know at a glance who"s rebuild it was   You"re gonna love the simplicity of the wiring and later if you decide to get any EZACDC components how it"ll just plug in. Do you have a before pic before you tore it down?

Thanks for fixing my post Charles. I"m still a little confused on how to post the pictures but I"ll do my best. You might have to resize them or whatever it is you do to make them come out looking os good. Pictures are not only nice to look at but they are worth a thousand words.

When I got my pontoon the only furniture that was on it was a rear bench seat that was in terrible shape & a helm that was laying on it"s side becuase it had rotted out at the bottom so there isn"t much to see when it comes to furniture. The carpet (if that"s what it was) was in pieces & there were very few of them left to pull up. The deck was so rotten I had to be careful where I stepped for fear of falling through. The fench, top & rails where in pretty good shape for the age of the boat. The toons were very dirty but Kleen Brite ac coil cleaner made them look like new again.

I have purchased everything I need except a 4X8 sheet of AZEK to build the bottom for the helm & cement for the carpet. I"ll be getting that sometime next week. I got the new transon board made today by laminating to pieces of 3/4 inch plywood togther that will be fiberglassed & painted before I install it. It started raining hard again so now I am taking a break & having myself a "cool one". And that happens to be a large glass of home made ice tea. The store wa all out of "pork chops" today.  I"ll take more pictures as I go along & try to post them correctly if that"s possible. This computer & me just don"t see eye to eye when it comes to pictures.

I am going to try & post some more pictures on the forum. My daughter who is the "computer guru" around here is going to "LEARN ME HOW ITS DONE". Here goes nothing.

 

Is the daughter GOOD or is she GOOD???

These YOUNG smart whipper snapper kids know everything. About computers anyway. Just ask my daughter.   It was SIMPLE to her but not so much for me. I just couldn"t see that CURSOR everyone was talking about. I LEARNED how to see it today. You want pictures? Are you sure you really want pictures? I"m going to be practicing posting pictures all next week.

 

When it STOPS raining I"ll take pics of the new transon boards I cut today before I fiberglass them & maybe my new trailer will be delivered by that time & I can take some of it too.

It"s pouring down rain again here right now. I"m beginning to think I might have to "anchor" the pontoon boat to keep it from floating away.
