Boat Breaking Ice

The slow, arduous forward progress through the hard packed ice is earned every inch of the way with true toughness. The cracking and crunching of the hull against the frozen fields as it lifts and splits the white menace is an audial experience that is a perfect example of your mind struggling to move through the day's work. An icebreaker is a special-purpose ship or boat designed to move and navigate through ice-covered waters. To pass through ice-covered water, an icebreaker uses its great momentum and power to drive its bow up onto the ice, breaking the ice under the immense weight of the ship. The first steam-powered icebreaker was the City Ice Boat No. 1, built by the city of Philadelphia in 1837. This sound uses the following file from Freesound:
