Looks like Mike Madge has been made into a celebrity by the gang at Scuttlebutt! Thanks to Mike for getting the loaner together and to Scuttlebutt for presenting so many articles about iceboating-

Here are some videos of Madges loaner boat being put to the test- Note that it is temporarily rigged with a sawed-off Hobie 16 mast as the original spruce rig is being glued together at the moment…. These were shot yesterday and the day before!

Just goes to show that you don’t need a bleeding-edge hi tech boat to have a good day on the ice….

We should all make it a point to cobble together a loaner boat and encourage people to try it-
