Looking for 2 man boat.

I'm looking for a 2 man iceboat. Does not have to be class legal or competitively fast. Doesn't even have to be pretty. Does need to be complete or nearly so.
I want something inexpensive to learn with. Contact me at Thanks! Steven A.

Ice Boating Magazine

I've been trying to find a magazine that I believe was called "Ice Boating Times." Maybe it was just a newsletter. Anyone else ever hear of this magazine, or remember something similar? It might have been from the 1970's. Thanks for any leads.

Global Warming: Where will we be sailing Dec 1 in 10 years?

I just wonder...

is tracking the first boatable ice or better... where are we sailing on Dec 1... could be as far south as Peppin, OshKosh, or Iowa...or further North... a good measure of global warming?

My guess is you guys will all get to sail on Devil's Lake, North Dakota at least once, on our way to Canada, eh.

It's really big, really shallow in many bays, and they've got a history of iceboating there that goes back to the 1870's the smaller bays are reported to be frozen now.

prior lake

we sailed last spring down there off the beach, in biggest part. not very big, sailed up and down the lake. but best ice around for that weekend so at least we were sailing. ice got soft i didn't bring my angles.

Iceboating on Prior lake...

I have an old nite I'm sailing on Prior lake this winter..anyone else ever sailed on that lake???

A set of Three Ice Boat Runners for sale

I bought these runners last year when I was planning to build an ice boat from scratch. OK, I had stars in my eyes! I ended up getting a two man B Class Skeeter that needed work.

Now I have an extra set of heavy duty runners. They are 34" long and in perfect shape! I paid $300 for the set. Make me an good offer and they can be yours!

Email me with your offer, questions or for pictures: escowracer (at)
