here are some pics,Struble shocks epoxied on,Canadian decal is free.
After a great sail on Saturday and part of Sunday the fun came to a crashing halt when I dropped my port runner into a pressure crack.30 miles of beautifull Ice and I got greedy and tried to go a bit further then I had scouted.Good news is there seems to be min. damage as the hull plates basically pulled off.Bad news is I was 5 miles from the launch site.Made for a long lonely "walk of shame".
Some action from the Weekend.
Picture taken at 7:30 P.M.
Drive on ice
You can sail right out to giant.
Miles of ice over 2' thick
Only issue,was getting boat to ice.
Nice back ground
perfect Ice all the way out
this is the amount of snow
Miles of Black ice with a dusting of snow.Fantastic day on the ice,great winds mild temps.
tells me that there was a DN sailing there Thursday. Amazing considering all the open water in these parts.
Decals on my plank
1. There's no Wall to run into.
2. Bigger courses and fleets are possible.
3. GPS Tracks from Clear Ice Short Course Races tell organizers what they should really be plowing for courses, when the time comes.
4. It's cheap easy and fast, just like laying down a starting line.
5. It's better on small ponds, more places to sail = more times to sailing.
6. You'll feel better letting somebody sail your boat there.
7. It's easy for rookies to sail, and as they have nothing to run into, much safer for them and others.
