I saw a bunch of posts on sawyer canoes and was wondering if anyone can help me determine what kind I have.
plate reads :SAW048890178
It used to be yellow but the previous owner painted it camo.
Maybe a 1978 Sport
I was hoping that one of the exports would chime in on this. I pulled out my old catalog (Early 80s I think) and find the Sport to be the closest: 16’ X 36" X 13". The HIN does specify that it is a 1978.
My guess is a Yankee Rebel 16 from their AuSable line. I am just not sure in they started that line back in 78. I am pretty sure most if not all I saw were yellow and the width and height are right on.
dimensions match up
Is the 190 36" wide?
I didn’t think mine was that wide, but I sold it about 12 years ago.
Mine wasn’t 36
Gave it to nephew a few years ago. IIRC waterline width was 33. Because it had constant flare the gunwale width may have bee n 36
Harry Roberts coined it the pocket rocket. Very fast for its size. A little lacking in primary stability and outstanding secondary
If it’s a 190
That is one sweet boat. Great tandem with a pretty sheer line! Numbers seem close, pic would help id it.
Beam (rails): 33"
Beam (4" WL): 30.5"
Beam (max): 33"
Depth (bow): 19"
Depth (midship): 12.5"
Weight (Goldenglass): 60lbs.
(superlite GG): 52lbs.
(expdition Kevlar): 54lbs.
(superlite Kevlar): 42lbs.
Thanks for all the help guys, here is a photo of the canoe
Don’t think that’s a 190
at least it doesn’t look like one to me. Perhaps the experts will chime in
Doesn’t look like one to me either.
O golly not a 190
Probably some direct ancestor though
Where’s Sawyer George?
This is a Sawyer 190 like I had
I have a Yankee rebel !
I have a photo of the name plate. I did a little wet sanding in the rain for your viewing pleasure. It had a sticker that read Yankee rebel.
Here it is:
It has 2 different years if you go by the last 2 numbers of the serial #. ?
For those of you that don't want to or are afraid to open anything it read:
It is a stamped aluminum plate rivited on.
It was originally banana yellow
Looks just like
My Yankee rebel. Look under paint by the bow for a stickers maybe you can get the paint off and still see them mine had Yankee rebel stickers. Same exact seats, gunnels , color, air box’s sticker on now air box. Tin drop downs.
I’m calling it a Yankee rebel!
