    But they do exist. On our eclipse trip in Antarctica on the Kaptain Klebnikov, we plowed through them at ten knots. It was summer there, and so the icebreaker just pushed all that ice away, splitting it into large floes. It did take a lot of horsepower.
     
    About finding a horizon there, I have my doubts. There were so many icebergs, and the visibility wasn't the best. It probably didn't matter since we saw very few celestial objects. The sun on eclipse day was visible, thank heavens!

    True -- and 10' thick sheets of ice are pretty rare (at least in salt water in non-polar regions)
