    That's very interesting. Do people get into ice sailing on the lake?

    Every 5-6 years the lake freezes over - is smooth - and the snow has not come yet. So, there could be a few days where ice boating is possible - but, it is rare.

    I recall a few years when the upper reaches of Great Bay would freeze over pretty well, except for the channel areas, when the tide went out the ice would fall with teh water, buckle, break up and run hard out under the Newington Bridge. But in the area of the mudflats he ice would just rest on the flats and gently rise and fall. I spent some very cold days out there trying to sample the mud through a foot and a half of ice.

    many years ago i sold a pickup with new tires on it and the first thing the new oner did was to take the tires off and put tons of screws in them and then put a tube in it . and i asked why he said he got this truck to do some ice racing on a lake . i said i hope IT was cold enough
