    I've heard of the Mackinaw. You were aboard her? That must have been cool! Freezing cold is probably more like it!

    50 below zero was the coldest we saw,but the good part was we could only work for 15 min.then go get a shot of whiskey from the doc on board and warm up for 30 min before we could go out again and work another 15 min.And by about quitting time you had a good warm feeling from the whiskey :D

    Doesn't sound like much fun to work in but the shot of whisky every hour is a bonus.
