rusty wrecks, wrapped in the mystery of the past, coarse fishing-vessels,
silent and still in the pack-ice waiting for the thaw, old wooden boats
abandoned and buried in the ground, tiny floating shells amazingly steady
on the waves, shaped by skilful wood artisans, impressive icebreakers
built in order to reach the Earths most remote and extreme sights:
the images that are proposed, far away from summer beaches tourism glare,
tell about survival stories and dramatic challenges across stormy seas.
