Hi, I am the proud owner of a delightful little Savage Sprat fibreglass Sailing Dinghy in very original condition, complete with Mast, rigging, sail and a slightly non-original outboard bracket.  She has a drop keel and is really quite spacious, considering her length.

None of the grandkids are into sailing, and have no value of 'historical' Australian boats.  She is really quit a jewel as she is still alive and well.  Perhaps I can exchange her for a more family size boat.

Expressions of interest gladly received.  Personally, I think she should be in the Savage museum.

regards

Hi, I made some quick shots on my iphone.  She has serial plate showing 69 D. 950, which Savage would be able to trace, I am sure.  It is amazing how well she has served many in her past life, and yet is still holding up with relatively good condition.

I have no idea how good fibreglass stands up in time, but if 69 is significant, she is probable 42 years old and the fibreglass appears to be in good strong condition.

As far as I know, the rigging appears to match the boat age, and the sail is good.  We even use the anchor when we go fishing.  I strap on a little Honda 2HP 4 stroke and she becomes a great tender, due to her beam. 

I have tried to attach some photos, but the board size prevents it.  I can send them to an email address separately if you can provide me with an address.

I live in Northmead, NSW 2152.  You can call me on 0416178642.

regards

Ian
