IceBreaker

‘...essential if a path is to be created through which others may follow...’


An icebreaker is a special purpose ship or boat designed to move and navigate through ice-covered waters. For a ship to be considered an icebreaker it requires three components: a strengthened hull, an ice-clearing shape, and the power to push through, none of which are possessed by most normal ships. Icebreakers are needed to keep trade routes open where there are either seasonal or permanent ice conditions. Icebreakers are expensive to build and very expensive to run. They are uncomfortable to travel in on the open sea. They are also uncomfortable to travel in when breaking through continuous thick ice due to constant motion, noise, and vibration but are essential if a path is to be created through which others may follow. The Rock is committed to this calling.
