Welcome

The purpose of this website is to draw attention to the unsung hero of the winter woe's and frozen lakes, and for those yerning to sail the solid waters.

I bring you "Skimmer 45®" ice boat.

I hope to supply you with updates from around the globe and hopefully somewhere much closer to you. Videos from those willing to submit them, pictures, etc.

Please feel free to provide any thoughts or suggestions to our website at runner@skimmer45.com

Don't forget we have Classifieds, events, etc in our Fourms.

Be safe and have fun.

Update Jan 2012:
2012 season is upon us! The northern tier has already seen some sailable ice. We've already had news reports of an ice boat getting wet. Double check your play areas for safe ice.
