Ice Breaker Wizard

This wizard finds the effect of having the hull lifted by a given amount at a given location. Whether it's ice or a rock or any other shoal doesn't matter. Usually the point of lifting would be at the bow.

When testing this wizard we ran our 95-foot fishing vessel as if she were an ice breaker. She took a good run at top speed and ran her bow up on the ice and got stuck there because she didn't have the weight to break through.

Too bad.
