The ice, from a storm never forecast, crushed the hull.

Designed by Nils Helleberg of the John Alden office, built in aluminum with apparently no thought to high-latitude or ice navigation. It should come as no surprise Antarctica is a wild place, just lucky they were anchored right in a settlement that had the ability to take the crew off the boat.

Having been to the Arctic and Antarctic on USCG Icebreakers...not sure I would want to go back to either on anything less....

Sure there are quick in and outs to the outskirts of these latitudes...but to go there in that type of vessel shows a complete lack of understanding....

For such a harsh environment, I'd want s more robust rudder design, and more protection for the props.

The owner may have believed Mr. Gore's predicted scenario about the climate. Didn't he predict the north pole ice cap would have disappeared by 2012?

I am not worried about the guy. I am sorry about the boat. What a loss
