Boating on Ice

Winter is coming and the weather is cooling in many parts of the world, especially here in New England where we are located. With that in mind, an article in yesterday's Portland Press Herald got our attention with a story about ice boating in Maine.

Of course, ice boating is common in places like Maine, Michigan, Wisconsin and pretty much anywhere in Canada, but we thought we'd share this adventurous sport with the rest of the world. If you are not one of the lucky few who can boat in warm weather all year long, perhaps ice boating would be a fun alternative for you to get your boating fix in the winter. If boating on "hard water" is common in your neck of the woods, tell us about it on the Daily Boater facebook page.
