Umiak Featured on TV Show Mighty Ships
There are ships… and then there are Mighty Ships. The Umiak I definitely falls into the latter category. Running between Voisey’s Bay and Quebec City, this bulk carrier can cut through sheets of ice nearly 2 metres thick. It’s no wonder it came to the attention of the Discovery Channel show ‘Mighty Ships.’ In fact, tonight’s episode of the show is all about the film crew’s adventure on the Umiak I earlier this winter. Michael Davidson was the director and he joins us on the line.
