Isn't hockey played at the time of year where most aren't sailing ? Now I am assuming you mean ice for your boat, but I've been wrong before.

Free ice? No way!

First, the ice rinks around here are open all year round (Canada Eh?) so you could get Zamboni ice if you wanted to. Which brings me to my second point... No Way should you even touch that ice! It has been spit on, bled on and vomited on. It is full, and I mean FULL of bacteria! The last thing I would want would be for that infectious Slushy to be anywhere near my food supplies.

Trust me, I know. I have been involved in hockey all my life... Canadian ,Eh?

fill juice or 1/2 gallon milk jugs with water and freeze them. They last long and don't make your icebox full of water. Then buy the one bag it takes for drinks and keep in there with it. a couple of these jugs last all weekend since they are so thick they melt real slow.

....and then they provide additional drinking water.

Instead of water, I usually freeze gatorade or juice in 1/2 gallon bottles. The ice freezes at a lower temperature and generally lasts longer than water ice, and like bottled water, it provides a good cold drink on a hot summer day. Remember to crack the top and pour a bit out, or the bottles tend to burst.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

for $200, you can buy a good icemaker at the big box stores which will make as much potable ice as you'd ever want and it sure beats carrying jugs around, requires very little power and can make 3 different sized cubes.

Yup, and it requires you run your engine to power it.
