Great Video

This one has it all: the travel: by jet from Holland, the heartbreak of the weather: rain and slush, the camaraderie: getting the boats down to the ice in spite of it all, and after all that, the sailing: Bantam Lake Connecticut 1967. For Frank Able, there is a skeeter called G-Whizz. Check out the sign in front of the CT Ice Boat Club.

    The cars are classic now and the $0.10 I95 toll in New Rochelle is now $1.75. City scenes are my first memories of NY but no hot chestnuts. Things look pretty much the same on Bantam. This is a true NY Metro ice boating retrospective. Thanks for digging it up Bill!
