Nice DN is very good condition for sale.

The hull is a Norton wedge.  Nice hull and the only thing I've noticed is the front bulkhead is not max forward. 

All Sarns hardware.

Sherry Glass Whip which I always thought was a consistently good mast.

Bryant alum. boom.

Henry Bossett Shore sail.  I believe but (not positive) it's a wide range sail which was always a good sail.   

Nice plank made of (top/bottom) hickory with a basswood/hickory core.  It's probably for someone in the 200 lbs. range.

Sarns bullnose runners with an extra steering runner.

Travel covers (canvas from Bossett) for hull, mast, plank and sail/boom.

Cockpit cover.

Saw horses, ice screw, several mainsheets, some extra parts.

The boat has been well cared for and lightly used.

Located in Rochester, NY

Contact Guy Lovejoy for pictures at guyljy@gmail.com

Asking $2800.

The Northern Cowboy Flame & Brew. The owners Brian and Dan will be happy to let us park up to 15 trailers on the lower yard next to the lake. They can be left there all night. The boats can park right on the lake next to the restaurant. Vehicles may drive down to this location on the grass. Once you unload, move vehicles to the east on the large grassy space behind the storage building and home,  as he owns 600 feet of shoreline.
Do not Park in the restaurant parking stalls!!!

We will plan to join him after sailing each day for a drink or two! Friday night is a great fish fry! Don’t forget to thank Brian and Dan, partners.
Once we reach the maximum allowed, use the original public landing 3/4 mile to the north.

Our ice is holding fine, in case you were concerned.
Just got off a FaceTime call from my local icescout. The launch site is solid. Lake is still a 9 rating and only one on it now was a guy ice skating all over!
Monday morning we had a legendary ice surfer on it in AM. He reported “magical ice”. He covered most of the 1 mile X 1.1 mile bay. The only reason he left at 12:30 was fear of falling on the skim coat of 1/4” moisture. Today it has no shell or standing water. Reported to be 4-5” thick.
Just to verify, Meyer and I will be sailing it Wed by 10 AM. We have 3 other options North or East, just in case, but confident the colder night tonight will make this sheet of ice perfect. No snow or rain predicted.
So if you were on the fence, time to make plans to join us for the Great Western Challenge.
Wed update to include launch of trailers on ice and an alternate parking area and carry on lot 1/4 mile away. The main launch should hold 25 vehicles and trailers if we space correctly.

Lodging Update
Days Inn 218-829-3080 Headquarters Hotel just about booked up. $92
Baymont Inn 218-822-1133 same owner has a iceboating special rate of $105 a few left
AmericInn 218-829-0391 no pool or hot tub but iceboater special of $79 Thur and $89 Sat-Sun

The Great Western Challenge is called on for Dec 1-3, 2017. Primary Site is North Long Lake. 5 miles north of Brainerd, MN. The boys did a great job scouting in light air. No soft spots like last year!
Watch for lodging information by the end of the day.
3 possible back up sites located near Twig, MN, 120 miles NE will be scouted this week. Just about zero chance of snow or rain with below freezing temperatures each night look promising.

Launch Site right on Hwy 371,  6 miles north of Brainerd. Note at this point the sailing area is the scouted smaller bay of North Long Lake right next to launch.


Headquarters Hotel is the Days Inn- Baxter/Brainerd. Phone is 218-829-3080. Located 4 miles south of Launch Site, just north of Brainerd.
https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/days-inn/baxter-minnesota/days-inn-and-suites-baxter-brainerd-area/overview?CID=LC:DI::GGL:RIO:National:48797&iata=00065402

Rates negotiated per night of Thurs, Fri, or Sat is $92/Night. Ask for the iceboating rate. 33 rooms are in the block of 2 queen beds or king bed. Rates include free WiFi, pool, hot tub and free breakfast. Some larger rooms may be available too.
Those that booked prior to rate deal will have rate adjusted!
No penalty for cancellation by 10 am day of stay.

My Rick Mercier Rant,( if your not sure who or what this means ,Google)

Taking a day off from iceboating here  ( season is in full on mode) and am taking time to reflect on what a great Sport Sailing really is,( even though I am not American,we don,t need a special day to be Thankfull)
So as I am spending the morning replacing the Wire rigging on My A Cat with Synthetic rigging,I gets to thinking,wow how nice is this.A:Not only is it Lighter ( not really a big deal for myself) but it is just as strong ( I am not an Engineer or Line ,Wire expert so I can only go with what I am told).B: it is significantly cheaper,no fancy Marine Eyes or special swagging needed .I can put a DN Shroud together for under $20. C:More convienient ( heck with a proper fid even I can rig up a shroud in under 10 min.)no ordering on line and paying shipping and waiting for it to arrive( you can probably really only appreciate this if your nearest rigging shop is more then 350 miles away).
Now without having been following the DN Politics lately,maybe Synthetic Rigging is allowed ( in which case disregard the next statement) then "WHY IS IT NOT " ( only in capitals to empasize the point)

On another seperate topic,I am curious about why at Major Events equipment is not weighed.The way I see some guys carry there Hulls around it gets me to thinking again ( I know too much thinking...) either.,A: These guys are way stronger then myself ( totally possible) .B: there Hulls are a lot lighter.or C: My Hull is grossly over weight and I am weak.Maybe yes there is an argument about my strength ( I am attending the gym more regularly)but I dispute that having weighed my Hull ,that it needs to lay off the Turkey.How much extra hassle would it be to get Hulls and masts weighed and stamped?
Anyway hopefully ,if not anything else I entertained you with my thoughts,if not then hopefully the Football games are good.
Happy Thangsgiving to all my American Friends,and if you live here in Canada then be Thankfull for that ( it really is Iceboating Heaven)
