An Iceboat Crossing
These are the earlier model of ice boats. They have no sails, and oars were used to propel them in water. On ice, as you see in the picture, the men would haul the ice boats by straps on the side. Some boats would have shoulder straps and the men would sling the straps over their shoulders and carry the ice boat to the next water patch.
