Damariscotta on Monday Feb 3

The faithful returned to boats waiting under grey sky on rain greyed ice, some of the small bumps smoothed off, the larger ones hard to see. It was hard to find avenues of smoother ice. The wind lightened around lunch time and laden with lunch skippers had a hard time keeping going.

The photo below is Doug Raymond with his vintage home made Cheapskate, somewhat smaller than our current model and sized to fit into his Volkswagon with NOTHING hanging out (take note Squibb). It sports a “Sunfish II” sail, I believe a small Laser sail. The runners are welded up plates. He did not get to sail because of steering problems. It is cute. How small can ice boats get and work?
