Erector sets for Iceboaters

The weekend started like this when the wind was down and we decided hey let's do something fun this weekend. So the iceboaters erector set came out, the clubs restored B class sternsteerer. It is amazing how fast these boats draw a crowd.

After corraling about as many people as we could find the project progressed pretty quickly as the winch on the ATV made raising the mast pretty easy. As the parts went on the crowd grew and even more people were drawn into the project. The nice thing about having the big boat on the ice was the fact that it was the first time with the new sails.
The day ended with a great sunset, good friends and a cold beverage, and of course a rigged classic.
