Question ID: 331013
My father recently handed down to me the slalom waterski that he learned to ski on. The ski was bought In Minnesota at Sears during the mid 1970s. It is an orange ski with the name "Banana Peel" on it. The ski had a plastic fin which was screwed into the ski(Very unlike skis nowadays which have metal fins). The ski itself is made out of wood. This plstic fin recently broke. Where can I find a replacement plastic fin for this ski?

A friend of mine had the exact ski you are talking about and I even used it several times. Hard to believe something so crude was state of the art back then. Unless you could find an old ski similar to the "Banana Peel" you are probably out of luck. As I remember that same plastic fin or one very similar was used on many slaloms back then. The next improvement was the use of cast aluminum. Maybe you could fabricate a fin out of aluminum and paint it black. It would look like the original and actually be stronger.
