A warm hello to everyone
itís been a long time since I last visited and posted on this forum
I though I would contribute to this thread on Savage boats as I suppose in the world of tinnies 30 years can be considered vintage.
I own a 1993 Savage Kestrel 400 fitted with a 1993 Mercury 20hp two stroke long shaft outboard engine. The boat is carried on a 1993 Dunbier Sport Series trailer.
I really enjoy this boat and find great pleasure at every use. What I like the most of this boat is the low maintenance, the great versatility in use and manoeuvrability, and her wider beam. She doesnít handle too well on choppy seas but that is understandable and perhaps stands for her limited size. The hull is strong and still in very good condition. I take good care of her, although (I have to admit) the engine is temperamental and could be a bit easier to start.
I like This photo

Thank you for reading

Ps. Despite being a very common file format type I canít upload the photo. Will try converting and posting later.

Geez Pete, YES... now I remember!

The Outboard Well reminds me so much of what I recall was a limited Haines Hunter which raced Offshore in the early 70's. It was called Christine, you may remember it? It had very similar "go fast" stripes in the Well too.

Merry Christmas to both you and Gill.

Hi Mark,

It is a Fred Williams Hustler.

I'm rather familiar with most fiberglass boats which were built in my lifetime. I can't say that I've ever seen anything like your boat.
Although, I can say that has at least 3 characteristics of at least three Australian hulls I can think of.

Initially I felt it may have been fully imported, but I'm tending to rule that out after a closer look.
Good luck with your endeavours.

Hi All,

I was hoping that someone could help me identify this hull in the attachments.

No one that I have met in the industry seems to have any idea and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Mercman
video was cool they pretty quick
the starter shaft broke under the pinion gear just wehre a littke hole is to take the end of a spring that sits under the pinion gear
maybe a little corosion and time
 put the spare on . had a weight under pinion gear and no spring slightly different but same main body and mounting holes .
google said it would fit multibale motors of that era   .
starts well and didnt smash anything ( did spin motor by hand first )
up and running again .after new fuel diaphram internal loom and startermotor
another test .
