A marker for a mooring frozen in the ice.
Seems like a little orange paint or a flag might have been nice...... I'll bet he needed a change of uniform after that sudden stop.
Sort of lucky that had a wood axle. If that had been a good lump of nicely welded steel that would have been an even more sudden stop Ouch!
devo...at least it was caught on film.
was the marker made from black box material?, as it looked unscathed.
build a yacht out of it and she'd be apples
Yeah the yacht would be apples but the pilot would be mush[}:)]
another interesting ice sailing video
Waiting to try out my landyachts on the ice, however it might have to warm up a bit:
