Multi-year ice is not to trifled with , nor are Growlers. One CCG icebreaker had her hull sliced opened by a growler lodged in a ice sheet, they were able to save her because they had a bunch of construction material aboard and were able to make a concrete patch on the inside so she could limp home. Ice also took the blade off of one of the props of the USCG Polar Star during a North Pole attempt with the CCG Louie St Laurent.

Thanks @Rainbow1910 I figured that would be the timeline, as they probably want to shake out the crew this year and then do the NWP next year. Besides, B Jetty isn't finished yet (getting close though) so there is no where to put MAX if they came soon!
