DIY Sunday – Racing Razor Blade Iceboat

Razor Blade Iceboat

Razor blades, box wood, and an old flour sack are the materials used in building this simple, fast and sure sailing iceboat. Balanced so that she will sail herself in all winds not strong enough to tip her, it will be found that this style boat is the answer to those boys who have often tried to make a workable miniature iceboat, only to find that the balance was wrong, that the thing was too heavy, or that it would not steer.

If there is still ice on the lakes and ponds around your neck of the woods you can make this nifty toy for your kids or yourself in a couple of hours. Click the icon below to download the plans published in the 1929 January edition of Popular Mechanix in pdf.
