Hi everyone.
Last year I bought an old Savage plywood clinker from the 60's. The previous owner told me the model of the boat is 'Vendetta'.
I've been scouring the web since, to find a picture of what the boat would have originally looked like. I've not had any luck finding pictures so far, nor even any references to a Savage boat called 'Vendetta', so I was beginning to doubt that was what I had. However, in another thread in this forum, there is a reference to a Savage Vendetta. So now I know that probably is what my boat is...if you know what I mean.
As i've been dismantling the boat for restoration, I can see it ins't in original form, so I'd really like to know what the original form was. Currently it has a Holden 308 inboard, with a 2 stage Hamilton jet on the back. That definitely isnt original.
If anyone can help me out here i'd really appreciate it.
I'll upload a photo of the boat, as soon as I figure out how.
thanks
Mike

Welcome Mike. There is a pic of an early Savage clinker outboard on the Board. http://board.net.au/yabbse/index.php?topic=134.0  It's  one in Melbourne some years ago on the Mornington Peninsular. Looking forward to the Pic.

Hi, and thanks for the reply. The hull shape does look very similar to mine, although a little shorter. Mine is an inboard (i've just realised this board is meant for outboard boats). I guess it's possible that mine was originally an outboard also. Anyway, I see plenty of discussion about Savage boats, which I havent seen on any other sites, so hopfully someone has some info about the Savage Vendetta.

Hi everyone.

I just found a document on the web, which contains a photograph of a Savage Vendetta. Unfortunately, it clouds the question of what my boat originally looked like, even more. It shows a fully open deck runabout with an outboard motor. This is absolutely nothing like my boat, although the hull does look the same.
Page 9 of this document (link below) shows a Vendetta, constructed by JJ Savage.

any comments from the experts ?
thanks

Mike, I'm sure Gillian Savage will be able to comment on this hull as she is one of our members and checkes in now and then.  I love the link and all the plywood hype, great stuff. As an inboard you are excused because it's a Savage.

Just as I am excused for my cab jobbie not being a runabout. I will get the ultimate AU runabout but not just yet.  U guys on the bad  coast are spoilt fer choices.

David and Mike,

I'm afraid I'm unable to help with that one.  I don't have any material at all really about Savage wooden runabouts.

I'll let you know if anything comes my way.

Cheers

Gillian
