    I think that Bonney inspired ski companies to build wide rides.

    @Jody_Seal Jody, someone needs to tell the passenger in the boat that Jeff Rogers wants his life vest back. :smile:

    @H2OWOOD that is a VERY impressive collection of wooden skis that you have. For how long have you been collecting them?

    Just picked up this nearly mint pair of Sea Gliders which I think are from the 60s. They are in unbelievably good condition for their age. The graphics are great and absolutely pop. 😎👍

    Score! Just picked this up today. Unbelievable deal. 😁👍 I've been wanting to get a Maha in my collection for a long time. 😊

    What is that little yellow wheel thingy mounted just above the front binding? It says Maherajah on it so it seems to be original to the ski. I have no idea what it was put there for. Does anybody know?

    Is this vintage enough? I got this in the early '90s

    Not skiis , but came across this photo on a Facebook group. In the neighboring town there is a small lake in the downtown area. Apparently back in the 50’s people used to ski there. Now its a homeless hangout and unsanitary.

    @DangerBoy looks like the front horseshoe slides to adjust binding size. The piece you’re pointing out is a stop to keep plate from sliding out all the way.

    Yellow wheel stops the front horse shoe. Bob Maher believed the tie should adjust not the heel.

    @6_Buoys The Taperflex with the red binders was my first ski circa 1968.

    @Brewski That's a great little collection of wood skis. That Connelly in the corner looks quite unusual with the high contrasting veneers on the outside and middle of the top sheet.

    @6_Buoys Those are some nice recent acquisitions. Hard to set the bindings any further back on that Voit ski eh? Can you imagine trying to ski on that thing riding so far back on the tail? Like riding a bike in a perpetual wheelie.
