Wanted: Damaged Javelin with Good Inner Hull

Wanted: Damaged Javelin with Good Inner Hull

Post by pi.. » Fri, 04 Dec 1992 01:46:40

          The Javelin Class Association has located a yacht builder
     who would like to put the Javelin back into production.  We are
     very eager to do this but first the builder needs to construct an
     inner-hull mold.  This would require sacrificing a boat and
     cutting the outer hull apart.
          The JCA is willing to pay many hundreds of dollars for any
     decked Javelin with a good inner hull.  The yacht builder will
     provide the transportation.
          Considering that a Javelin with no mast or rudder would cost
     more to repair than the boat would be worth, there are likely to
     be a number of Javelins we could use; the candidate need not have
     a damaged outer hull!
          Early Javelins had no inner hull so we need a unit produced
     in the late 1970's or after; I believe the hull number would be
     4000 or greater.
          We are hoping to turn somebody's storm loss from a total
     loss to partial loss.  If anybody has any leads to follow, please
     get in touch.
          Another lead we would like to follow is to put a wanted-to-
     buy ad in the Florida or New Orleans boat-trader tabloids (where
     the hurricane went through); I would need to know the names and
     phone numbers of these publications.
          Not being experienced with e-mail, I would think mail and
     telephone would be a more relible way to reach me.  Thanks.
