Re: What happens when the water gets hard
I have an old Hobie Cat that I have been very tempted to put runners on it. Compared to most ice boats, it would have a much larger sail area. Another feature is that one would be able to it on the windward side to help balance, rather than sitting in the center, which is how common ice boats are built. It would be heavy, but I have to think the sail area would make up for it.

Sailing a large boat on a small lake is very tacky.
