Your V4 would be an unbelievable match on a Haines 17R. I would really love to find one of those hulls and have it professionally repaired and restored!
That would be a great ski and social boat.

I'm going greater that you could ever imagine..   Grin

Now, what are you going to do with that rig may I ask? It certainly won't be a go fast boat like your other boats you currently have, that's for sure.

Hey Nigel,
If you find a Glastron 150 you have to put a V4 on it. (No, not a Super Strangler)

mmm, I think you are on to something there Nigel, could be. I recon you may own every other remaining 1500XS (within Australia).


Those Jav's would suck to the surface like a sting ray to the sea bottom. No amount of trim or grunt will help them achieve a speed over 50mph. The reality is, the Jav's were a sporty looking mini barge which rode as if it had square wheels!!

As you well know, BB still hold the Australian record at over 87MPH with the same motor but with a far better hull.

I recall the max power for a Jav' was 100hp or may be 110hp. The only reason for this, was to able to haul out 3 x skiers on singles from a deep water start, certainly not outright speed of course!

Hello Anthony,
I had a look at Facebook.
 

Is that a genuine 1500XS on the Javelin?

Thanks Neil,
I had a very good look on our Javelin list before I posted the pic, I'm quite confident this vessel a new "find".

130 Javelin hulls, who would have thought that many Javelins were built? I wonder what the total number of Savage branded hulls were "popped out" during all  those years of manufacture?

Happy NY to you and Kerrie, Neil.
Thanks for your post, it was a good buy by someone. Wasn't me!

I've added the vessel to our Javelin count.

G'day Andrew, That's very sad that your Thrust Washer wasn't included, during the re-installation of your prop.

As for the fuel flow, my guess would be to investigate the integrity of the lines. Mark will no doubt check cholesterol levels and the inside diameter of the arteries feeding the carbies. No bulk billing with Mark either. 

Mark's a good man, I'm very sure he'll persist with the old girl....and your outboard.

MERCMAN.
