Williams RunaboutOwner Paul Williams built this boat from drawings by Ken Bassett over a two-year period. The hull was built by one foot wide planks of quarter inch Okome plywood laid diagonally over transverse stringers. Following that, an outer layer of solid 1/4″ Honduras mahogany planks were glued down with epoxy the length of the hull. Third, Wililams did a lot of sanding and many coats of varnish to finish the hull. Finally, he completed all the metal parts, which he made out of brass and then chrome plated. Everything–including seats and the trailer–was built by Williams. When he finished, he quickly started work on a more practical 20 Runabout that he now keep in the summer months at a lake in the Sierras. He is now also starting on a 30′ Glass-Cabin Launch that he hopes to have done in two to three years. Building boats is a true hobby and passion of Williams’.

Owner GARY MILTIMORE

In 1958, Gary Miltimore’s father purchased this javlyn from the Long Beach manufacturer. The boat was in Alamitos Bay until Miltimore moved to Newport Beach in 1979. She was raced from Avalon to Pierpoint Landing in 1963, taking third place in class, making it in 53 minutes. She has crossed the Catalina Channel on own bottom numerous times. Miltimore modified her by adding splash rails on chine and vee bottom for better ocean performance.

The Javlyn was trailered to Balboa Yacht Club by a 1929 Hupmobile, originally purchased by Miltimore’ grandmother in 1931 for $375 in Los Angeles, She moved to Catalina Island in 1938, leaving the car behind with her daughter, Gary’s mother. The roadster was from 1953-1979, when it was brought to Newport Beach. If only cars could talk. She has 248,000 original miles.

In his teens, Miltimore started racing in local events and by 1972 had become a part of the intense world of the offshore racing circuit sailing aboard such famous racers as Kialoa II and III, Baruna, Sirius II, Blackfin, Windward Passage, Cheetah, Ragtime and Merlin. Miltimore chalked up thousands of bluewater miles including six Transpacs, two Transatlantic races, the Newport to Bermuda Classic, Florida’s Southern Ocean Racing Conference, Hawaii’s Clipper Cup and the China Sea Race from Hong Kong to Manila, among others.

For over forty years, Gary Miltimore has explored the evolution of the offshore racing yacht through his paintings and extensive racing experience. Although he is perhaps best known along the waterfront as the creator of wild hull graphics and vibrant name lettering on yacht transoms, Miltimore has also enjoyed a somewhat lesser known career as a yacht portraitist. Usually working on direct commission from yacht owners, his works are in the collections of industrialists and developers, yacht builders, owners and crew alike. The work illustrates the artist’s unique relationship with the boats he paints.

A California native, Miltimore grew up spending summers on Catalina Island where he spent his days on the water and acquired his love for the endlessly fascinating shapes of the boats that surrounded him. His paintings include his impressions of classic yachts such as Puritan and Goodwill that were often seen anchored off Avalon and the Casino in the 1950’s.

One more item he can check off his bucket list in 2011-12. It was restored, reupholstered, and re-chromed, and now is ready for leisurely bay cruising. Check.
