    This is a msg to fellow ice boaters who knew Irving york or as he was known as Sonny he has passed due to health issues and from the virus I have his iceboat d7 I think in great shape either special blades plus extra set and would like to sell it to a good home only it was his pride and joy

      Stan, I didn’t know Sonny as I only entered the realm of ice boating this past season. But I’ve already come to enjoy the fellowship that seems to exist within this relatively small circle. So guessing based on your name that you are either a brother or son to Sonny, I thought I’d just jump in and extend my condolences on your loss. These are indeed extraordinary times and any loss is a sad one. Here’s hoping for thick, smooth ice and a steady breeze for your lost loved one. Jim

  2. We are doing a shop clean out and the old Hull tools aren’t making the cut. They are looking for a new home. These are Jeff Kent’s second generation of female hull tools. There is a third generation that we are keeping. The bottom tools are split to be able to release without draft. The deck tool has the racks molded in. The link below has pictures.

    DN iceboat #3391. This is a really nice DN and is in EXCELLENT condition. All framing plus the plank and boom are of Sitka Spruce and I have replace the top and bottom decking and cockpit with epoxy coated (2 coats) 5mm plywood. The bottom also has a layer of 4 oz. fiberglass cloth. The glass cloth is invisible but adds abrasion resistance and stiffness. I then applied two coats of UV resistant varnish. All mechanical linkages were checked and updated as needed at that time. It was originally built in Annapolis Maryland using the WEST (wood epoxy saturation technique). The runners are Sarns steel plates in excellent condition. I sharpened them in January 2017 using diamond files. I also have slush runners. It has a Boston sail which is in good condition. Vermont sailing partners in Colchester Vermont installed a couple of new grommets on the sail 2 years ago. I also have a storm sail. The mast is aluminum. Blocks are Harken. The runners are in wooden boxes and the plank and sail are in canvas bags.

    It’s also listed on Craigslist with pictures here:


    Any more questions feel free to ask.

    ST49 Wing Boat for Sale

    ST49. This wing powered design is more efficent than any sail. Does not come with runners but includes brand new 12 foot rear plank with electropolished stainless steel chocks. The wing is light and covered in heat shrink plastic. The plans call for covering with luan thin ply. That would be a more rugged cover as the heat shrink works well but has some handling rash. Includes an electric heater in the cockpit and electric ice traction motor in case you are becalmed far out on some lake. $500 OBO Call Dean at 860-677-7533 or email pyroartist AT I have the detailed plans for this wing-powered design by John Eisenlohr. Located in central CT.

    • jim gervolino

      Dean it’s Jim Gervolino again. What is a electric ice traction motor?

      Jim, good question. It is a geared-down electric motor that drives a pointy-tooth sprocket
      that can be lowered onto the ice from the center of the boat to propel it in case you are stranded or
      becalmed way out on some lonely lake. I never tried it but I liked the concept.
      You see I had all this empty space in front of the wing inside the boat so….. – Dean

    Due to an injury, my days on the ice unfortunately have come to an end.
    I have a totally serviceable DN that is ready to go.
    Sarns runners were machined by Steve Duhamel and have not seen the ice since.
    Jack Erikson was kind enough to let me hang in his shop last winter (for about 6 hours total) and get the boat dialed in to within a couple of thousandths. I weigh 185 pounds so it is aligned and balanced for me.
    Aluminum mast, aluminum boom with internal halyard.
    Nothing new but all serviceable and ready to go.
    From here to the ice and sail.
    Cranberry hull with navy blue cockpit with very few dings.
