GREAT - just when I thought there wasn't anything left for me to buy for ice fishing. The yooper crawler would be way too much fun. Leave it to our brothers from upnort to come up with this.

That's the wide crawler....it looks inviting, but it seems a bit under powered, but I know nothing.....

There's several self propelled shelters on the market. 
Each pretty cool in their own way.
Here's some info on the one's that I know of:  Any one know the speed or price on a YooperCrawler?
 
Yooper Crawler
yooopercrawler.com
weight 1650 or 1750 (does it float ?)
speed ?
price ?


Sno Bear
snow-bear.com
weight 2800
it's supposed to float,  I saw photos of one that kinda half floated or bobbed (at least it didn't sink to the bottom)
speed 24 mph
price fall of '06 was $32,000 (now ? $35,000 ? )


Wilcraft
thewilcraft.com
weight 500
IT FLOATS (see my avatar)
speed 20 mph
price around $11,000 to $13,000



So it's probably no surprise which one I'm partial to.
. . . Reasons . . .
I fish many different lakes anywhere from a mile to 300 miles from home.  It's easy to trailer and can be hauled in the back of a pickup truck.
It's the weight and bouyancy that allow for fishing during early thin ice and late rotten ice; thus extending the duration of the icefishing season WHILE adding a safety factor.
Have YOU Clamped YET ?
