Is Joe Boston from the Boston Sail making company? I had a boat with Boston sails.

Fine fotos! Standing still, the ice boats bring fond memories. I’ve watched them scream with speed. Now a Brit plans to break through 100 mph at Canyon Ferry Reservoir in Montana. I guess conditions are excellent there. His name is Richard Jenkins. Currently 60 mph is the standing record. All the best to all.

Fine fotos. Have’nt seen the DN iceboats sail in years. Love ’em. Richard Jenkins, a Brit, is going to try to reach the 100 mph level in Montana. 60 mph is regarded as the top speed since accurate measuring devices came on scene. ABTA

Ice boats! Joe Boston of Michigan was national champ with a speed of about 140 mph in the 1930’s The ratio was 11 (boat speed) to 1! ABTA

All fine fotos. The one with ice boats excites me not because I’ve ever sailed one but I’ve watched those who have. I’ve sailed inshore on the east and west coasts on benevolent seas but ice sailing is something else. Per the late and great Joe Boston, the ratio of wind to boat speed is 11 to 1. Joe was a national champ. His speed was around 140 mph on a Wisconsin lake in the 1930’s All blessings to all.
