Stone boat pulling is based on the stone boat that we used to drag around the fields of New England when preparing for planting. You would load the stones and boulders onto it then pull it to the side and dump it off. These days you start out with the light tractors pulling about 3-5 500lb concrete blocks on the heavy steel boat. the chain length can vary from 4 to 10 feet. So every one in turn gets hooked and gets two tries to get a full pull which can vary from 10 to 20 feet. Anyone who doesn't get a full pull gets their distance recorded and they are out. Once everyone has their try another block is added. This repeats until just one or no one gets a full pull and then on to the next weight class. You can probably see that it is a slow moving day, but it takes much more attention to detail and skill and experience than sled pulling. Track reading and balance are very important, and the biggest thing is the difficulty in getting the boat started when you are near the max for your tractor. Traction is much more important than power, and JDs usually excel.
