Hi Julian,
Some how I missed this post?? Sorry.
The top boat is a 15' Savage Pursuit with a 1966 110hp Merc
The bottom boat is a 14' Savage Viva with a 40hp Evinrude.

Conduct a "search" on this Forum for more on these two Hulls. There are quite a number of posts I've made over these years, about them.
The search button is at the top of the page, third from the left.

BTW, I reckon I still have that very same magazine somewhere??

MERCMAN.

Hi David,

thank you for welcoming me to the Board, and thank you also for the good advice. I bought the boat not realising that there were a lot of non genuine parts and parts missing. So looking for a bombed out Javelin on gumtree is a really good idea. It's also good to know that they are out there, as I wasn't sure. I just wanted to ask whether you know what year model my boat would likely be, and whether there is a photo on the Board of a boat that is the same "type" as mine. I'm interested to see what the original steering wheel, instruments, screen looked like. Also, do the different types of screens fit only certain models, or are they interchangeable? For example, if a Javelin has a short screen as mine does, will only the short screens fit that boat?   

Thank you.

Julian

Hi all,

I found this photo on line of a Javelin in near new condition back in the day. I really like this photo, as it shows what a Jav looked like out of the water back then. And the creme colour of the trailer is interesting, as i'm used to seeing the trailers in black (as mine is). It's also a nice photo of a family from that era out on what looks to be a holiday, with the family car towing the boat (i.e. the Valiant). Now the vehicle of choice at most boat ramps is the Hylux/Triton etc ute.

Hi all,

I came across this picture of a magazine cover from 1967 on the net. I recognise the boat in the middle as a Javelin, but i'm not sure about the other 2 boats in the photo. They look like Savage boats, but i'm not sure of the model. Does anyone out there know?

Julian

Hi Julian
Welcome. Your boat looks fine externally but the interior and deck is a shame.
Nothing is original, wheel, screen, seating and as you say deck fittings.
Itís really hard to find these parts, if the hull is sound it would be best to source another bombed out javelin with original bits. Look on gumtree. These bombs are normally not listed as Javelin or Savage.
