Hi there and welcome to The Board qldelectra.
The vessel you have shown us is a very over powered Savage Pursuit, from what I can make out.
The Hull Number you have provided appears to be the HIN (Hull Identification Number) These are issued by agents on behalf of your State waterway mob, not the manufacturer of the vessel.
The manufacturers plate is bout 3"x 2". It has a black back ground with silver lettering. This plate is usually located in the engine well on the port side and it is afixed with rivits. In the early days (1964-69?) this plate showed very limited information such as the manufacturers name and address phone number, Hull Serial No and a HP rating. Not all ID plates had the HP rating stamped in the space provided on the plate, for some obscure reason. 
I can see you have a V6 Evinrude bolted on the back, but I can't quite see the horsepower on the side. Those motors were available in 175, 200 and 225hp.
The maximum rating for a Pursuit was only 100hp or may be 110hp max'. We have a member of The Board who can tell us the exact rating of the old Pursuit, perhaps we will hear from Mark soon?

I respectfully suggest you carefully read your marine insurance policy. These days, most policies say you are "on your own" if the vessel is over powered.

Hi all,
It looks like a Pursuit to me too. Overpowered as Mercman states. Recommended max HP is 110. It should measure up as 15'0" long and have a beam of 72". Production ceased in 1969.

I replaced the floor in my Javelin, but the stringers were OK. I cut away the old floor and managed to insert a new ply floor, then had to glass the lot all over. I then carpeted it and it was good as new.
So my advice is to  first, cut out the floor and inspect the stringers. If the stringers are stuffed then that's another prob.

Snuck in another of my old Electra balanced on a hoist whilst changing trailers. This shows its lovely lines if you can look past the junk about and the TV antenna. (for you Neil)
