I am a 69 year old man who absolutely loves boats. When I was a teen, I built my first boat in my senior year of high school woodshop. It was a Glen El Swift design. I took a metal shop class and built a custom fit trailer for it. I bought a broken 50 horse motor for it & with the help of my father got it running top notch. INSTANT WATER SKIING! When I got out of the Air Force I bought a Rayson Craft 16 ft. with an 80 horse Merc (all brand new) I really loved that boat. It was black with, with silver metal flake trim. For years ; I enjoyed that boat & became one hell of a slolenm water skiier. Back in the sixties, we used to take our Obrian or Connely skiis and put a smaller skeg on them and go skiing on mount hood (Hence snow boards). I'm retired now and I live where there's a ton of lakes and water and:damm it:I want another Rayson Craft and I want to water ski again,.(my ex-wife hated boats and water and cost me my boat and my passion) She left me for another guy 22 years ago & I want to get back on the water on a ski. I'm trying to find a deal on a 16 ft. Rayson Craft to put behind my now passed fathers mint 1973 Ford pickup and go water skiing again! By the way; anybody knowing the wherabouts of a connelly, tunnel bottom, wood inlaid ski please; let me Know!!!
