What a find! Care to trickle out any more? I feel people on this board have been looking for their old New Wave catalogues for a while now.

Sure. Got a specific boat you want to see?

'92 was a few years before my boating time, so I'd simply be interested to see what glass they were offering then, and what they had to say about it. A digitized NW catalogue would be a nice piece of history--particularly now that PS Composites' website has been relegated to the wayback machine!

I'll see if I can get the whole catalog scanned this week, then post it.

Whoo Hoo. This is huge. This is one of the 2 holy grails that we have been keeping this board running for someone to find.
You simply must full rez scan every page and post. The world is counting on you. :mrgreen: Please send me a zip of it all too. angst at usa dot com

The other holy grail that that we are hoping to find is an issue of American Whitewater from around this time period. It had a picture on the cover of most of the hardcore grandfathers of the sport that were the awe of squirters like me that started up around this early 90's era in the southeast.
It was a picture at Cat's Pajamas with everyone's boats leaned vertically against the rock wall and had all the big name rodeo competitors of the time like Wayne Gentry, Doug Wellman, Francis Mallory, Bob McDonnough etc.

Like the '92 NW catalogue, that was a touch before my time, but I've been looking for it in the AW archives off/on since you mentioned it (all the pre-2006 magazines are scanned and available, even to non-members). There are a handful of articles about squirt boats from the late '80s/early '90s, including a multi-page piece about buying a custom boat that covers a range of the glass sinkers (Pro-Jet) to creekers (Screamin' Meanie) of the time https://www.americanwhitewater.org/cont ... 9/page/36/ or an interview with the Snyders https://www.americanwhitewater.org/cont ... 0/page/32/ or Risa's coverage of the '91 Ocoee Rodeo, which features some of those OG names https://www.americanwhitewater.org/cont ... 1/page/12/

But no luck on finding that specific issue...

I've been working on trying to post the rest of the catalog but I can't seem to get more than 2 pages to attach at one time. Also my scanner isn't all that good. I'll try to get it scanned at Kinko's (high res) then I'd be happy to email it to you Eric and maybe you can get it to load. The whole catalog is 40 pages. Email me at dgwalton9atgmaildotcom.
