Need for speed.

It's so cold up here. The lake is frozen SOLID and there is no snow. I have a craving for speed! Can't go boating, can't ride the sled, so I started looking for an Ice boat for sale and came across this site I thought some of you may get a kick out of. Check out some of the videos - kind a silly.

If you happen to know of an ice boat for sale please let me know.
Thanks.

196 1.25 inch carbide studs and carbide runners on the sled is the cure.

The new one have new 350 ci engines mounted in the hull with a huge belt drive system to the prop! They can be out fitted with heaters, wipers, and seat design you can think of. These things are totaly custom! They will be at the Toronto boat show if you want to see one in real life. Or want to drive one? No problem, any time! Here are a couple of shots at the factory.

He ie one getting the poly botom attached! If you can't see they have a steped hull for more speed in the water!
