The name is horrible. But it's not my boat. Font looks bad hopefully you change that name. My friend named his boat "42Q" and I thought that was bad but this is worse.

Love how he "built" everything he installed on this boat (especially those 'inset placeholders'). AKA had his buddies do most of the work while he stained a couple pieces of plywood. Sick skills

Don't know why this was in suggested videos list. It's so disappointing to see how tasteless people can be. Benches, table, nothing is matching the style and spirit of that boat. And replacing the name was absolutely horrible.

Express Cruiser is a sub-category of yacht. Like how Cockapoos are a sub-category of dogs (but not all dogs are Cockapoos). A yacht is a leisure boat with facilities for overnight stays. You have a yacht, an express cruiser yacht.

This is the equivalent of buying an RV for your first car, then taking driving lessons while waiting for your RV to be delivered. Is your car bigger than everyones elses? Yes. Is your inexperience in driving a car going to be obvious? Also yes. Your screwed once you get caught in any midly bad weather.

deasil engines will smoke a little and might not be too much of a problem. I'm not a mechanic but worse case I think there might be a little blow by from the pistons. if you take the oil filler cap off then start the engine, you will see smoke in the oil filling tube if there is oil getting around the piston. if you don't see smoke there I think your in good shape

Nice boat. BTW Diesel is not gas. Its fuel. Make the change to calling it that or one day you boat will get filled with the wrong stuff. Very expensive.

Of course it is good to do cosmetic improvements e. g. upgrade the interior but... the most important thing is the outside.. check the hull for visible / hidden osmosis under the waterline Remove the propellers for a thorough ndt intercristaline corrosion test and surface corrosion check of the shafts. The problem with buying a 30 years old boat is that you fall in love with the thing. Boats require a huge amount of maintenance and money.
A grave misunderstanding

I would have replaced everything broken with matching parts including all the navigation equipment... The iPhone is only an emergency tool for me when the main equipment fails.... And if I was the coast guard I would have given you immediately a ticket for giving that name to the beat... I hope you were trolling us with that name 😂🤣

Learning to "steer" a boat at idle speed using just the engines is difficult for new boaters. The boat steers from the aft which is different from your car so most folks take a while to get the hang of it. Bravo for getting it in your slip w/o crashing.

Portland reppin! Except the lower Willamette right there is the worst quality water in damn near all of Oregon. Columbia out towards Fairview at Chinook Landing is one of the better spots for the Columbia. The K Line car ship look like it’s right in St Johns

Wow..... love your enthusiasm....but this is a boat, not an apartment with a balcony using IKEA furniture. Geeze....all that wood crap furniture....then you want to BBQ on your wood table. Good way to burn your whole marina down. You seem like a smart guy..... and would enjoy boating with more experience....good luck and enjoy.

What you don't know about radar and navigation will cost you your life. Put the radar back on. It doesn't work on obsolete bands. It transmits it's own signal.

This is awesome. You went and bought your first boat, a 44' Riva, without ever even sailing a rubber duck before? That's jumping in at the deep end. You don't do things by half do you? What was this boat licence you got in rapid time and which authority issued it?
