Vintage Picture!

My 57 Offshore in the mid sixties at a water-skiing party on the Mississippi River. My Great Uncle is on the Thompson and my Mom is the blonde lady with her back turned in the middle of the picture putting a ski on. Looks like they were having a good time, about 10 years before I was even born.

The fiberglass boat on the right is either a Mariner made at Red Wing, MN or Span Boats made at Rice lake, WI. They had that distinctive decorative lapstrake look at the stern.
