Monday and possibly tuesday look good for iceboating….we launched on Sunday from the beach at Darmiscotta Farm. This is to the west of our old boat launch. Access was a little constrained, but should be better monday….trailers were hand rolled onto the ice, sometimes across planks….definitely no cars on the ice.
Winds were excellent, about 10-15 WNW and sunny….there were six boats: two whizzes, one beautiful rebuildt Nite recently purchased by Breck, Icywood-DN agressively piloted by his son, Brice’s Cheapskate, and my own mini-skeeter. the ice was very hard and very fast….a little bumpy.
tomorrow may have less wind 5-10 perhaps…..(let’s hope for 10!); and tuesday less wind…perhaps 5Kn.
Today, I was hesitant to go all the way south to the narrows sailing alone; but i suspect another very frigid night will further heal any hazards…. and possibly allow a group to explore the south part of the lake.
if you’re hungry for maine ice, tomorrow may be your day….jory
