Ice Fishing Sled that Tips up into a wind shelter
No I haven't made one so sorry if you were looking for pictures.
But I am in the process of making one and was wondering if anyone else has made one to see how it worked and what things I may need to change.
It's basically a homemade sled 3 foot wide x 5 ft long x 1.5 ft high at the front and 2 ft high at the back. The back has a slight tilt forward of 6 inches from top to bottom, front is curved. The top has a solid cover split down the middle, attached with hinges along the sides. The hinge allows the top pieces to fold flat against the sides if a cover is not needed. Trying to make it all out of scrap tin sheeting to make it light and easy to pull except for the sides which will be plywood, lumber frame. It is long enough for an auger, bucket, cam, chair etc. Once out on the ice and the gear is removed the whole sled can be flipped up with the front to the sky and the back now flat on the ice. Because there is a tilt on the back the sled is angled to its top. The Top cover becomes two wings that extend the shack out 4 ft on either side to support it making a three sided wind shelter, just enough room to setup a chair.
Idea is I'll have a nice sled to pull my gear and if its windy I can quickly flip it up and get out of the wind.
Any suggestions would be appreciated before I get into it.
