I found an old 1984 Mastercraft brochure and thought you might find a couple of the illustrations interesting.

Power Slot (1.5:1) vs 1:1

Hey, that boat isnt an 84, it looks like an 82 or earlier. I guess they didn't want to sink on every year.

The brochure is a big 11" x 14" 12 page, showing all the models they had back then. ONE

Cool. You know, we really have to find a way to have these scanned & preserved... TTAdmin?

I would guess that Mastercraft has a file somewhere with at least one copy of all the old brochures.
If not, I bet as a group, we have mostof the years somewhere or another. I would guess I have about 1/3 of them between 82 and 04.

Problem is, some of them are bigger than 8.5 x 11 and will not fit on my scanner.

From what I remember TT Admin saying when we were talking about older brochures some time back, the record keeping at MC wasn't so very good back in the day.

How about a library of a MC related brochures, ads,manuals (boat, engine, trailer), news articles, etc. Wouldn't it be great to see the "downloads" area expand backwards to '68 if possible. I think there was a string or suggestion about this on the old board.

With all the changes over the years, I wouldn't be suprised if the company would have a hard time producing this material. But I'll bet, as a group, owners have most, if not all, of it.

Putting it in digital format is the tricky part. As you point out, not everyone has the ability to create the required files. And, I'm not sure if owners would be willing to take the time and money to have it done. Nor would they necessarily feel comfortable loaning their materials to the company ( or someone else) to scan them. Any ideas?

Nice shot of the level flotation.

There is 'stitching' software out there that will piece together scans larger than your scanner bed. I just can't remember where I saw it.

We did discuss this a bit on the old thread, but it didn't go anywhere.

I wouldn't mind putting some time into it if I can find that software. I think I have one or two brochures around somewhere..
