    If you’re going to be at the new WoodyBoater HQ and there is no internet service AND only limited cell phone connectivity we’ll need to update you on a land line. Do they man the switchboard during normal hours in Reedville? “One ringy dingy, two ringy dingy. Yes, is this the party to whom I am speaking?”

      So hard to predict – when was the last time a GW Miss America became available?

      I baselessly guess bids in the $600k – $800k range in spite of unfinished condition, with a reserve above that. The engine costs alone must have been tremendous and I suspect would make up a significant part of the bid amounts that I am wildly predictiing the boat will generate. I Will be at the meeting in SF so won’t even be able to watch it.

    I’d just like for someone to explain what IIX means. Is that the same as VIII?

      Yeah! Wish I could have heard that! But they didn’t have Bob Wallace to tweak the installation, and finally swapped them back for the Riva Crusaders….too bad….now it’s “just another Aquarama”….;-)

    What number AQ was that? Was it for Ferruccio himself? I have long heard this “myth”

    For anyone who is not familiar with Riva-World I can speak with personal experience. Sandro and his team did an outstanding job restoring our Riva Super Aquarama # 125. The restoration of the Lamborghini Riva will be first rate and a showstopper! The original V12 engines are still in the Lamborghini Museum with a small Aquarama model along side.
