Ratman made a suggestion to take pictures of the article and post to see if its cleans up so it can be read.If that doesn't work I'll have it typed in tomorrow.The article is pretty interesting.

Wish I had all my mags from the day !
Interesting how those boats were the cat's meow , especially in terms of luxury (which the magazine articles always picked up on)... for their time !

By today's standards they are pretty spartan, but had all they needed to get the job done .
Unlike the characterless blobs of today these originals still stand out 40 years later.

What a truly talented bunch it was who got the ball rolling.

Brownie sent a Nova 24 out here in the late 60's/early 70's. It's owner always said (and still does) the exact same thing about aluminum outdrives... Poo poohs boats with I/O s

.. Wonder where he got that from ?

S

Thanks for posting all those great articles .

Glad you guys enjoyed the posts,would like to do more but I want to clean up this resolution problm first. I am not the best puter person out there so I need some advice.I have the scanner resolution set at 200 . The next setting is 300 and than 600, is 200 the problem,will 300 change it enough so it's readable?If changing the scanner resolution is not going to clear it up tell me.I have access to a really good camera and will photograph and than load if thats what it takes.
