    This all brings back memories, a friend took me out ice boating when I was in high school, did not have the space or mean to haul one around so it died there for me. I am thinking I should look at making one again. I know I have photo copies of the plans for a wood DN around here somewhere. A metal tube framed one would be cool like metalbenders.

    That's sort of my problem, also- 99.9% of the ice around here is in the refrigerator.

    Here's a 16' Alum. boat I built a few years ago.
    The Merc. 150 is OK, but I'm still trying to figure out how to put a sail on it.
