Agreed after being an airplane pilot for 30 years that the bladder tanks could shift at the wrong time and OH BOY we got a bad weight and balance issue.
I would not travel with any ice. Period.
Leaving in mid to late summer, end July, you could hop from NF, Greenland, Iceland, Faroes, Shetlands, Scotland.
I once planned that route, ending in Bergen, Norway.
