Often a term met with squeals of delight, not so much here. The Bestevaer 56ST Tranquilo was stuck in the snow and ice way up in Northern Canada for 10 months(!), and just last month broke free. Four of those months were spent in near complete darkness. The owner has been world cruising the beefy 56 for five years. Singlehanded.

Good Caption Contest material, no?
