Damariscotta is almost there, but temps tonight don’t appear to be cold enough to finish the job. There’s some wet shell and standing water, and about an inch of softer ice in places. But the launch it still tight and there is twelve inches of lovely black ice under this marginal surface.
On another subject, the Boston Science Museum has contracted with Cosmic Productions to do a forty-five minute Imax film about winter in New England. They’d like us to provide iceboats and sailors for a day of filming whenever the conditions are good. More on that later, but be prepared for some choreography: this will be fun! And just imagine the power and drama of iceboating on the big Imax screen.
