Ah those were the 70's...

Had a nice afternoon the other day rummaging thru a marine consignment shop. Of the many things available, they had a bunch of Sail Magazines from the late 60's and early 70's.

I picked up a couple for 25 cents - interesting time for sailing - as it was truly in its heyday - all of the manufacturer ads from now defunct companies.

I also had to post a couple of "classic" ads:

1) A Man and his Woman
2) What it means to Fill your Fracker

See link below at Flickr


A lot different than the ads in the current sail magazine, eh?
