Iceboating 3 - The Wreck of the Galatea (and much much more)

From Ice Yachts! 2-7-2010

Well, I don't know about eloquence. But I did at least achieve captions for the Ice Yachts! 2-7-2010 gallery & now it's a pretty good photo trip report from our iceboat adventure. Wonder what the heck is going on in the picture above? Head on over, it's all there!

Quick lunchtime update - John Sperr, owner, skipper & restorer of the Galatea, has posted his own report of the day's events over on hriyc.org. Lots of interesting information about just how much care & effort goes into these restorations - for instance, people were talking about how they'd find the old ice yachts stored in a barn somewhere; I had pictured the boat being in pieces, but essentially all one place, but it sounds like just finding all of the main components can take a good bit of detective work. Fascinating reading!
