Alton ice boat: from Feb 7th Baysider

Quote:
ALTON — The re¬cent donation of an air boat from a Rattle¬snake Island philan¬thropist will boost the town’s - and that of the whole region’s - capaci¬ty to help first respond¬ers ensure the safety of folks on Winnipesau¬kee prior to ice out.

The boat is an Alu¬mitech flat-bottom model with a polymer base. It was secured by the Alton Firemen, Inc., the non-profit arm of the AFD. It was out¬fitted with $18k worth of upgrades, donated by private individuals. The asset, therefore, comes to Alton with no hard costs or implica¬tions for taxpayers."
