Instant Ice dang
« on: February 06, 2019, 02:51:51 PM »
Ever open a water bottle right at freezing and watch it freeze in your hand?
That in it's self is cool, sorry for the pun...not.

A few weekend ago my boy and his buddy went to the river for one last goose hunt.

As per normal they put out in the total darkness of a moonless sky and headed up the river with a boat full of decoys and a ton of ammo.

As there going the boy thought the boat was unusually un responsive.

He had on his LED light bars to help see any floating ice or  rocks.

Nothing looked unusual.

after around an hour they where hardly moving agents the current and the tiller was very hard to turn.

They put in at there destination and jumped out to set the decoys.

He got to looking and the boat is surrounded by feet of slush.

and the motor drive was about ingulfed with slush.

Crazy .

As they moved through the water it was turning in to ice and they had to have added hundreds of pound of slush to the boat.

He said when they put out the decoys the decoy and line would build ice and drag the decoys down stream.

Shortly after sun up it all went away.

DANG.

Do you think if they had gone farther it would have sunk them?

I don't think so ice floats but I'll bet it would have stalled there foreword motion and they would have drifter back down stream unable to steer.

Scary

 :shock: Wow! That had to be scary, D! I bet the boat would have stalled somewhere on the water. That is very strange and it must have been really cold weather.
