I would like to know how much interest there would be in a one day on the water vintage ski boat show. Well if a 1988 production based on a 1976 design counts, and you hold one next year, then count me in! I call it the smallest 20' boat on water and you only have to sit in it once to know what I mean,,, I can touch the water while sitting in the drivers seat when stopped.
And no its not been refinished, overall its pretty clean, but like any used and unrestored boat it has a few flaws. Dick Binette learned to water ski on Lake Winnipesaukee and went on to become an international champion. I have my old wood Velmar, it has my name enlaid in walnut and the ski is ash, it is from the early 60's, also have a wood O'Brien and a wood Mahraja. My Dad gave me a old wood ski called a Sidewinder, it has a concave bottom, has anyone heard of that type before?

Something like gathering at the beach near Walter's Market on Winnisquam, having a ride under the bridge and through the no wake zone, and maybe an out and back water ski race exhibition on the large part of the lake.
In 1954 he broke the world's record for ski jumping at the National Championships, held on Lake Opechee and hosted by the Weirs Ski Club. He has just had the bottom refinished and detailed by Seattle yacht specialist Diamond Painting to the tune of $2500. Click here to email the seller directly if you are interested. The Reinell Jet Flight is mentioned, and an amazing restored stock example is shown being towed by an eerily similar looking 1959 Impala coupe. This one has been restored and mildly customized by its current seller who has owned it for five years, and offers it with both vintage and modern outboard engines, along with a vintage trailer.


More photos of that pair are here, and that same owner also has these photos of a similarly restored red example here.
He says it is turn-key and handles and performs very nicely, and that it feels like driving an old sports car.
Those two Jet Flights and the boat offered here are the only examples we have been able to find online. I'm thinking roughly late 50's to late 70's vintage, roughly coinciding with the time period that the waterski races took place.
