I saw this boat at the auction, it should be in a museum.
It was unbelievable & so was the price.

------This Riva was down at Ocean Reef 2 years ago at a boat-car-plane show. It is without a doubt the finest resto on a boat I have ever seen. No way would I have ever got it wet it was so perfect. I think the boat was on the money and probably a loss as far as the restoration costs were concerned. It was on E-bay several times but couldnt generate any interest. Leave it to Dana Mecum to find the money.........Bill S

I was there too. Couldn't agree with LS more. The thing was just stunning. A real jaw dropper. It was like jewelry.
