Diesel Duck 462 breaking ice and the first tour of the year

Leaving homemeport heading south for a 30Nm trip to Oxelösund shipyard for haul out, we needed to break ice to get out of the Bay of Trosa.
The whole bay was closed by a 100-200mtrs wide belt of ice. Some of the ice was easy to go through but some iceblocks were thick and not having any experience from Dora Mac and icebreaking I was impressed by her way of handling this . Fortunately circumstances otherwise were ideal with light winds and sunshine (or we would have had to turn back).
An exciting and impressive first tour of the year.
Since Swedish authorities changed the law concerning ship registry Dora Mac is no longer considered to be a ship (less than 24mtrs LOA). For that reason we will now sail under Swedish flag and be registered in homeport.
