The Fauerbach Brewery, located on lake Monona, was the home base for family ice yachts and sailboats from the 1870s to the 1960s. Iceboats included the Scout, the Minnie, F.B.C., Princess I, II, and III. 

The Princess II was designed by William Bernhard, and sailed by Emil Fauerbach, Andy Flom and William Bernhard.

 Princess II won many races and achieved local fame. Emil offered $100 to anyone who could beat the Princess II.
