I sadly had an old iceboat I went out of my way on a three hour drive to pick up.
It was the ugly girl at the prom. Too heavy, needed touching up, and frankly couldn’t give it away when the time came.
I bought it from a guy on Cape Cod and didn’t realize my mistake until I was there to pick it up. It was my second boat and thought it would be a good loaner. It wasn’t.
So it wasn’t a good loaner, I couldn’t give it away.. Literally… So I did the only thing I could do, I give it a worthy send off in a clean up fire.
Sadly even the hardware wasn’t worth saving.
God speed old boat.
