Last year my mother passed. Cleaning out all the stuff I came across some things she saved for over 45 years that I didn't know she saved.

I am probably older than most of the people frequenting Team Talk so I thought I'd share a few photos from what it was like in the early '70's and just getting into tournament skiing while I was in high school.

The first pics will be of a letter I received in 1971 from Mastercraft when I inquired about Mastercraft Boats. Think about at that time Mastercraft had been making boats only 3 years.

Look at the standard equipment list and then look at the options. LOL

(i tried to rotate but it wouldn't rotate)

6k in 1974 money got you a whole boat.
6k in 2017 money gets you 2 sets of tower speakers

About $35,000 in today's dollars. That'd buy you about 1/2 of a ProStar today.

Would be cool to have a *.pdf if you would scan and post. Worth printing on heavy parchment like you have there and hanging on the wall of the man cave.

Hope you are going to matte and frame that!
