Hey all! I just bought a 12.5' x 6.5' ice shanty from craigslist. It is a "home made" shack that sits on a trailer. This is my first permanent shack, and it will be sitting on a lake all winter.
What tips and suggestions could you offer to ensure I have minimal issues with leaving it on the lake? What's the best equipment to use to jack it up and rest it on all winter on the ice? I will be removing the tires so the bottom of the shanty can sit closer to the surface of the ice. One concern I have is if the temperatures rise and then refreeze, causing the whole unit to sink lower into the ice which might make it harder to remove at the end of the season.
Any tips/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
