Its a home built wood side by side two person boat "modeled after an arrow". It also may be similar to a Gambit. It has no front spring board with a body construction similar to a DN. Dont know any other details as it was built by someone in Colorado many years ago. I would estimate the boat is in the 12 to 13 foot lenght by 8 to 10 foot wide range. Virtually no thought given to safety (similar to most ice boats..). Yes, Im fairly certain its a "uncut" 14 mast.

FYI, if you want to know the real story about ice boat speeds, here is an article from an expert (Bob Dill)

My sailing neighbor up north tried to do that same thing on his ice boat and he said it didn't work so well....
