STOLEN BOATS AND TRAILER!

Ron Sherry’s trailer with 3 Renegade iceboats inside was stolen near Detroit, MI over the weekend from a locked storage facility. Please keep an eye out for these boats. The trailer can be replaced but iceboats built by Ron and his dad, Lorne, can not.

!!! STOLEN !!! !!! STOLEN !!! !!! STOLEN !!! !!! STOLEN !!!
PLEASE SHARE FAR AND WIDE!!!
Ron Sherry’s Renegade Trailer was stolen from Fraser Automotive near 14 Mile and Utica Road. It was stored in a locked, fenced area. The chain to the lot was cut and the locked hitch coupler was somehow bypassed, allowing them to drive off with the trailer and all its contents. Three generations of Renegade iceboats, Lorne’s, Ron’s, and CJ’s Sweet Caroline, plus all the planks, sails, and tools. The license plate on the trailer is D829645. There is a sticker that says Iceboat near the lock on the door. Please contact us ASAP if you see this trailer.   Contact Ron at ron@iceboatracing.com   if you see the trailer, the boats, or fun into anyone with some Renegade iceboats for sale....

Good ice coming up in middle of the country this weekend.

Sadly I am selling my DN this weekend, have not used it for a decade as I have been going to South Africa to kitesurfer each winter, and now with rotator cuff surgery I will not use it again this year. Best let someone else enjoy it. I'll go out with my buddies and watch the show.

Not much racing due to COVID stuff this year but there was plenty of hard water sailing-

Here is a vid of a few boats living it up on Moosehead Lake in Maine in early April.  Take a look and if you want to give it a go next year send me a message, I have an extra boat for you to use.  It's a blast and anyone can get the things moving-

Think Ice!    Serge

I did manage to get a couple of days of ice boating in this year.   I am already looking forward to next season.

Is it really a boat since it dosent float or would it be considered a wind craft?

Hell Yeah!   If you are in New England and want to give it a try PM me and I'll throw you in my spare boat this winter-  just show up at the lake!

Also you can come to the swap meet-  interesting to see the boats and gear and meet the gang.

Think ICE!  Serge
