Anybody ever built one? A friend of mine approached me to build one this winter but we ran out of time, we have materials but nothing assembled yet. We're looking at a simple ~12ft "boat" with a tyvek sail, nothing sophisticated :-)

We'll probably end up building it this fall, I thought I would see if anyone is interested in helping to design/fabricate one over the summer/fall?

Were you still planning on doing this? Sounds like an interesting idea.

I've never built one from scratch, but I did overhaul an old 2-seater iceboat a few years ago. Also have some friends who used to do scratch building, so I know where to go to look for tricks and spare parts...

Iceboating is a total gas: the first time I pulled the sheet hard-in on a friends DN, I thought I was in an F-16 with the afterburner on! Scared the **** out of myself, came back and told my friend "That's the most insane thing I've ever done; what would it cost to get me one!".

Still interested, as well.

Side note, is my gif working for anyone? It was fine last time I was on, but now it's broken for me. Don't know if it's Chrome messing with me.
