    Steve Novak is still around. He lives in south Anch on 142nd or 144th or something close. PM Scooter for the phone number. It's on the label on the ski brakes on the skis I gave him with my -12 sale. Hey Scooter, I still have some extra pins for those brakes in my toolbox.

    Just looked at the Craigslist ad. Those are my old skis.

    It's been really slow, but things will start to move along fairly quickly now. Should be in the air late winter - early spring. Sorry about your friend Ron.

    Reunited with the Mac. Here's a pic of my old Novak brakes with a phone number on the data tag that you should be able to read.

    Videos are impressive of the Grizzly Brake. I am going to purchase a set and install them on my L2500A SKis. Will let you all know how I like them and how well they work. Agree, cheaper than a wing tip or a prop.
