Splendid old craft. Pity there wasn't a video.

Must be all that melted glacier ice that's refreezing in the Hudson

"These are the only two boats like this in the world," said Kevin Lawrence, who with his father, Rick, skippered the Frost for the Hudson club.

Funny, that looks just like the one we saw out on the lake in Idaho when I was a kid. Wasn't enough wind that day, so the guy who owned it and my dad ran behind it and pushed me for a while so I got a ride.

"This is a very unique, unusual situation," said John Vargo, a former commodore of the Hudson club who was on the ice wearing an entire skinned coyote on his head, fastened by the forepaws tied under his chin. "It's once in a lifetime."

I like how the writer just had to comment on this superb headgear.
