We're sailing ice boats now. Our cursing grounds are iced in. Got 7 more inches of snow last night so the little DN is inoperable until the winds clear some ice.
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.
