Did MasterCraft ever make water skis?

My son picked up an old ski and put bindings on backwards to do slalom backward ATB. I took pictures of him skiing on it backward the other day. Later on when I was looking at my pictures I noticed the ski had the MasterCraft logo on it. I was wondering if this was maybe a decal someone stuck on there or if MasterCraft made skis at some point in the past. I haven't seen them before if MasterCraft does (or did) make them.

I don't have a picture of the ski all by itself but here is a picture in the water.

I know back in the 80's they made or had made slalom skis, both Bob and Chris LaPoint skied on them but the nose looks different.....

MasterCraft had branded ski's, competition, vests, ropes and handles manufactured back in the early "80's to early '90's and they were marketed and sold thru the ProShop. I got two 67" ski blanks from MC back in 1991 on a visit to the factory. I know members Ski King and kas have some ski's, handles and vest in their collections. I keep a Team MasterCraft handle on a World Line as a utility ski rope and the handle is still our daughters favorite.

yes, I have a Mastercraft Pulse slalom ski with Bob LaPoint signature on it and a Mastercraft nylon ski vest from days past. They made slalom and jump skis, or at least had there name on them.
