Looks like that bike they rescued was kept afloat by the box on the back. (and the air in the tires) I heard if you strap a few flotation seat cusions to the racks it can keep her from sinking all the way. Anybody have any experience in this?

Actually that bike woulda sunk if my buddie didnt get a strap on it quick. I got there, drilled two holes, slung a tow rope, and put it on the bumper. Then we used two come-alongs, and a lot of grunting. It wasn't an old hut hole, but a pressure crack that opened up, refroze, then it snowed a little. it actually looked like a good place to cross. That crack is there every year, same place. Just goes to show, No ice is safe ice.
Normaly just a sleigh made out of angle iron. Im working on another permanent as we speak. Im toying with the idea of permanently attaching runners. Double up some 2x12. Instead of using the sleigh. They dont ride up on the snow drifts more plow through it. I have a month to decide. Been on the iceshanty web site looking at pics all week i am undecided
frenchie19: I think there is a free launch on the Keswick side of Cook's Bay .. however I have never launched on that side. I have put in at Innisfil Beach Park and have also used Cook's Bay Marina. I think it cost me $20 to launch and $20 to park last November

crappie: Hi Peter, will you give us your report as usual? Haven't seen your report for long time and people rely on your report before going out. Lots of anglers saying the shoreline is not too safe.
