I bought Class# 2225 Last winter. I am going to lauch it tomorrow (finally) if all goes well.
One site that is indispensable is the Yahoo group. JavelinSailors : JavelinSailors
Also check out The O'Day Javelin Project
it is a 'Classic' model but full of good info.
Then finally there is http://www.caskeyco nstructioncompan...sonrise_ 1.htm
Which shows all of the upgrades that are recommended by Javelin Owner's Manual by Dan Reiber. (Dan is an active member of the yahoo group above)
As to answer your question this is what was sent to me.
This is complements of "Mic Healey" <mic@...> in an old email:
As far as the year of your boat - you can use this list:
CLASSIC JAVELIN PRODUCTION HISTORY
YEAR PRODUCED CLASS NUMBERS
1963 1 - 92
1964 93 - 256
1965 257 - 437
1966 438 - 818
1967 819 - 1147
1968 1148 - 1414
1969 1415 - 1728
1970 1729 - 2053
1971 2054 - 2261
1972 2262 - 2376
-Looks like you have a 1971 (final year) model.
The hull number would seem to be the serial of ALL ODAY MODELS produced.
The class number is the number of Javelins produced.
The number on the sail should be the CLASS NUMBER, which would be the number
of your Javelin.
(Look on your boat and see if there is a plate with a HULL number and a CLASS
If this is accurate then you appear to have a 1971 model.
