I was looking thru a stack of old waterski magazines I have and found an article in a Fall 1979 issue about the Mercruser Ski-Jump Classic. The boat that was used was a Mastercraft I/O. The article claims it was a joint effert to design between MasterCraft's Rob Shirley and Mercruiser.
It must not have caught on, thank goodness........

Sorry, there were no photos of the boat in the article.

I saw one of these at the west coast reunion many years ago. It got a lot of attention. Unfortunately, I didn't get any photos. I guess it just goes to show that MC is trying new things all the time.
