Polar Bound departs for Northwest Passage

Arctic voyagers David Scott Cowper and Jane Maufe departed Petersburg’s Harbor in the motor vessel Polar Bound Tuesday afternoon for their next adventure motoring through the Northwest Passage. The duo piloted the Polar Bound through the McClure Strait last summer and became the first pleasure craft to make it through that normally frozen waterway. This year’s departure was delayed a day as Cowper made last minute repairs to the toilet on board the vessel Monday. Several friends saw them off Tuesday and Joe Viechnicki spoke with Cowper just before they left.
