Hi Terry

One of the things that you can do is look into the history of Ice Seamanship, which is both fascinating and almost completely un-researched.

Here are a couple of modern ones which may well have insights:

Ice seamanship / by George Q. Parnell.
George Q. Parnell
London : Nautical Institute, [1986]

Handling ships in ice : a practical guide to handling class 1A and 1AS ships / by Johan Buyssse [i.e. Buysse].
Johan Buysse
London : Nautical Institute, 2007.

Polar ship operations : a practical guide / by Duke Snider.
Duke Snider, (Ship captain)
London : Nautical Institute, c2012.

And an older one:
Navigation of Hudson Bay and Straits / by Charles N. Bell.
Charles N. Bell, (Charles Napier), 1854-1936.
Winnipeg : Manitoba Daily Free Press, 1883.

Good Luck!
