Not Exactly Smooth Sailing

The Caitlin Arctic Stunt Survey did good work today; they went over 14 Km. and crossed 83 degrees Latitude North. Just 774 Km. to go to the Pole. The weather is -45 degrees C (it's about the same F), so cold they act and sound drunk on the videos.
I think I would rather hit my temple with a ball peen hammer repeatedly than spend ten minutes on the Arctic Ocean within 80 degrees Latitude North. You'd think the ice was at least relatively smooth. It's not so at the pressure ridges such as shown in the Martin Hartley photo here.
