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) comcast.net

Gaff type spar

I have an old wood spar that I think is from a class A stern steerer. It's a gaff type rig (3 pieces) with the boom and mast being about 28' in length.

A sectional view would be round.

It has been stored in our Minneapolis shop since the late '50s and in some garage, for who knows how long, before that. The boat was probably sailed on Lake Minnetonka.

Let me know if someone out there would have a use for this.
