And they are stern steerers! There are still a few of these kicking around and they occasionally bring them out, just like the Hudson River gang with their classic stern steerers. They were out last weekend on a secret lake somewhere south of here. Our spy managed to snap this shot without getting caught:

Apparently there were twenty-five boats on the ice, even a few from NJ.
