At least they could have included a map of the 'waters'.

I only flew domestic flights but 10-15 yrs ago, one was near the Bering Strait where I was only 90 miles from Russia. I really could "see Russia from there!"

North of Barrow that summer was all hard and white. I doubt a ship could have easily made the passage without an ice breaker.

Didn't a Nordhavn 57 accomplish the same about 6 years ago?

Yes, perhaps even longer than that. The Other Side of the Ice is the documentary of the trip, but itís more a story of reuniting his fractured family than about doing the NW Passage.
