Tucked up alongside Moosehead lake is First Roach Pond. Michael Young is there and reports that this is how it looks today:
Now that we have your attention, here’s the scoop on the Tuneup Clinic this coming weekend:
If you have any interest in iceboating this is the place to be on the 20th. You may have seen us on some frozen lake in New England and always wanted to try it. Maybe you are tired of frostbiting and looking for drier winter sailing? Maybe read about it on Scuttlebutt Sailing News and promised yourself that this is the year you get into iceboating. Drag that iceboat out of the rafters and bring it down for a survey and help in getting it ice-worthy. The iceboating welcome mat is out. Come on down.
Whatever your interest level, show up and let’s get you started.
Date: Saturday, November 20th
Time: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Location: Arthur C. Lamb Company 85 Jackson St, Canton, MA 02021
Refreshments: Served continuously throughout the day
Google Directions: https://goo.gl/maps/3zuJS2G2Nm3BwLYs5
We have a full schedule of events but want to focus on the new iceboaters. Especially those that are struggling to figure it all out and get themselves and their boats on the ice for the first time. Calling all Newbies: here is your chance to have even the questions you didn’t know to ask answered. Bring your boats down to be surveyed by a collective of maybe 1000 years of iceboating experience.
Other happenings during the day
- Paul Zucco – Demonstrating plank construction techniques
- James “T” Thieler – Right of Way Rules
- Bob Haag – Metallurgy the science behind our runners in laymens terms
- Multiple People – Runner chock alignment techniques
- TBD – Runner Care
- Ice checking Round Table Discussions
If you have anything to sell be sure it is listed on the Classified Section. Next Saturday is a great opportunity to meet up with potential buyers and sellers. Let people know an item can be delivered to the tune-Up.
The Tuneup Clinic isn’t far from where I live and I’d like to listen in on some of the talks. Is there an agenda that you can share?
I’d be on thin ice if I acquired another boat, but what else is new?

Visited this “event” today, driving down from portland maine. A complete new world opened up for a soft water sailor (me). After lots of chats, advices and tips with mostly senior white man, like me, I drove home with a beautiful wooden mast, boom and plank (or board) with the right chocks. I will be on the ice this winter as a newbie in an old but working DN, thanks to Stephen Lamb. Jos Ruks
