    Ice boats?

    Anyone on here ever build one?

    I may have accidently just volunteered to build a few youth ice boats that use an Opti rig.

    I have gone through some serious long dry spells, and it might be something that keeps me motivated, which would be good. I get real lazy when I don't work for a few months. Takes a while to get used to waking up, and actually doing something with the day again.

    No clue how to build one, but I hope you show pics along the way. Looks like there are a lot of plans available.

    No idea on how to build one but my friends Dad had one when I was a kid. It was a ton of fun.
