I think Codeman and I were looking for pix of the specific boat in Glendale i.e on Winnipesaukee.

It sounds like K needs schooling in the art of boat ogling, and how important it is to our disability of Boat-Admiration-itis..........

If I recall correctly the boat is owned by WWE superstar Triple H (Paul Levesque) and has been seen on the lake many times.

Default I don't think that it is Triple H's...

....I have not seen "Midnight Express", but I have seen HHH and his fam in his boat numerous times, as his estate is just a few houses down from me. His boat is actually very modest, given his wealth....a 26' Bryant that is probably 7 or 8 years old.

Speaking of the Glendale docks, does anyone know who owns the
'Aston Martin' convertible parked there ?

I'm thinking the owner is an islander, as I see it parked there frequently.
Sweet ride !

Starting price for these babys' are around $200k, and go up from there. yikes !

It's all about balance...getting water and fuel in the tanks to offset the battery weight...it's a delicate machine!

Ah 'yes' the Riva, now it all makes sense ! What a nice boat, I had heard
that the boat is made in Italy, and was sent across 'the pond' ! Seen it pull into the docks last year a few times.

I know the man's name now, but will refrain from publishing for his privacy.

We came into the docks at the same time one morning this week... he said " hey, I like your boat". I said " well, it's not a Riva, but it does what I need it to do". I told him about some of the features and he said " well it probably cost as mush as the Riva". I said " close...but not quite as much"! :-)

Default Italian boats

Lots of Italian boats are imported to Fort Lauderdale and then move around the country. Last March, there was a Riva and an Apreeamare in the shop at Hi-Gloss Boat Restorations at the same time/ Riva is part of the Ferretti Group and Apremare was part of the group starting in 2001. Apremare has since left Ferretti as I understand it.

Default Riva Lamborghini Aquarama

I love Rivas. I guess basically the Italian Chris Craft but possibly a higher end. Lots of movie stars back in the day bought them, in particular, the Aquarama. Some of you may know the story. Ferruccio Lamborghini decided to purchase one in '68 but decided the standard engines werenít enough for him. As it turns out, many items were not adequate for him. He collaborated with Carlo Riva and had a special one-off Aquarama built with two 4 liter Lambo V12 engines. Riva had his assemblers spend around 3000 hours to reach perfection. Very cool. Here is a quick vid showing a test run after an extensive recent restoration by Dutch Riva. The second link is a lost and found story of the boat.
