Work At Sea | Crew breaking Heavy Frozen Ice on Deck



  1. I always enjoy reading comments made by people who’ve never experienced what they’ve just watched hahaha

    I fished the bearing sea in Alaska many years. Boats have enough engineering issues and things that can sink them as is, adding more is not only a nuisance but removes space for cargo and lowers the tonnage they carry. Ice has to be removed or the boat will roll over. It’s gets top heavy. The fastest safest way is to remove it with dead blow hammers like in this video. Even salt water freezes. Hot water freezes faster than cold and adds even more weight to an already top heavy vessel
