Title: Savage Fisherman
Post by: Murray210 on November 08, 2016, 12:07:45 PM
Hi,
I have just purchased a nice little restored Savage Fisherman with a BMW 7hp Inboard.
I have had fast boats, big boats, row boats etc. But this Fisherman is a cracker. Not fast, but it's not the point, as they say once on board you have arrived, the rest is about the journey.

Hi Neil, thanks for the Welcome, I had a timber putter a few years ago with a Blaxland 3.5, so this is an upgrade on the maintenance front for me, I have had her out to see in Partially smooth waters, very stable little craft, enjoy your vintage cruiser :)

Thanks Mercman,
been out in the sea in her, but she is under propped, prop is stamped 12 inch and has a 9 pitch, but actually measures up at 10 x 9. 12 x 12 is about right for its spec, hp, box ratio etc. Just making up a nicer little 316 S/S 4 post canopy for some shade, bit hot up in North Qld this time of year. Sorting out another prop at the moment and will go out and see how she travels.
