FYI, Weeks Yacht Yard in Patchogue, NY makes a pretty nice little DN.

We also sail South Bay Scooters on Great South Bay. It is kind of a spoon-shaped hull with steel runners on the bottom--developed because the brackish water doesn't freeze solid in spots so it can kind of "skim" over a water patch. Steering is with the sails.

Hope the snow clears for you.

Merry Christmas.
