We went on Stefnir SAR boat at lunch time from Kopavogur harbour onwards to Snarfari marina for refueling, once we approached Grotta we ran into very strong notherly wind and got lot of sea spray, once we approached Ellidarvogur nearby Snarfari marina there were thick ice so we couldnīt come close to the marina and we had to return back to Kopavogur harbour.

Going out in a rib in the ice.

Indeed, we are mad and insane.... that surely is important to live in our country :wellfunny

Parker 900 Baltic ICE-SAR is a very good ICE-breaker :hugegrin:

We had good time on the water although -9 degrees, and water temperature most likely around freezing point :banana:

Well that's answered that then, there is clearly life on the other planets.

Coz these guys can't be from ours.

What makes the Baltic ICE-SAR differenet from normal Baltic 900's, and turns it in to an ice breaker.

Puts us to shame not going out because we had a few inches of snow.

It is a standard Baltic 900 hull, we can not going into thick ice, thus we did not go further in.

The difference lays in different layout, height of A-frame, towing capabilities.
