Awesome trip! Looked like a lot of fun. Great Pictures. I've never made a hard water trip but I hope to someday. Very Inspiring.

Good report. You may want to consider replacing the Jet Sled with a Paris Expedition Sled, which is narrower, longer and easier to pull. They’re commonly used on polar expeditions. If you feel the urge to make improvements, search first for examples of them being used as pulks. A good resource is this free guide:

Great little write up. I'm jealous of your 6 months of trips this year. I miss those days. I second the pulk idea. You will have a lot more control.
