Portable shelter

4 posts in this topic

I purchased a 6X12 Canvascraft shelter, and it is without a doubt the ultimate portable ice fishing shelter. If you are interested in fishing with someone else, this is definitely the best option. Fishing with 4 people is not uncomfortable, and if you're only fishing with 2, you could "camp" inside this shelter for days without a problem. Just wanted people to know there are options other than the shelters that are heavily advertised!

Canvas Craft is located in Ramsey right off Hwy. 10. They have a newer material that is White on the inside and Black on the outside with Thinsulate sandwhiched in between.

I believe that Canvas Craft and Otter Outdoors used to be connected with each other. The new white interior is real nice, but about doubles the cost of the house. Very high quality build. Another option you should consider is the PolarSport double wide. Same concept as the Otterskin from Canvas Craft, but less expensive and lighter in overall weight. It nice that we have so many choices these days :-)

Canvas Craft's thinsulate insulated houses are the ultimate! We went to Red Lake in Feb-March and were out there for 3 days and 2 nights. At that time the temps overnight went down to -25 F. and we had 70 F. inside with just a Mr. Heater/Cooker running on low and a Coleman lantern burning. We have an 8x8 and would recommend the insulated houses to anyone, anytime. Canvas Craft used to make the houses for Otter but the people at C.C. told us that Otter ventured out on their own and are sewing their own houses now. The insulted houses C.C. make are the best thing ever invented!

    • I know I didn't pay $28 each for the trolley. Maybe half that. On the lake so I can't look up where I got them right this second.    Menards has the strut channel and a bunch of accessories. 
    • Strut is $15 per 10' at Menards. I've bought the trolleys from Mcmaster Carr before. Looks like they are $25 each on there for the doubles.
    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
