The problem here was that part of the tarp that covered the swimming pool fell into the water, and then the whole surface froze over. This video shows the W500 being used to break the ice and retrieve the tarp so that it could be properly reattached around the pool.
Using the kayak in a canoeing mode made more sense because the short canoe paddle works better in such a restricted space, and it’s more effective for breaking the ice.
Here in Minnesota we’re already switching to ice fishing, which is very popular.
