9.2 The Hulk or Covetor for Ice Mining ?

Although the Covetor has no bonus to its ice yield, the Hulk was secretly given one along
the line. It has a 3% in cycle time reduction per level. Which means, with harvesters II:

500 sec * 0.75 * 0.85 * 0.95^2 = 287.67sec

You'll manage to complete just a little over 12 cycles per hour. Since every cycle you get
1 unit of ice per ice harvester, and a Hulk fits 3, you'll end up having 36 units of ice in
just a little over one hour.

The following table compares both ships:

Ship Ice units/hour Cycle (in sec) Cycles/hour
Mackinaw 44 317.28 11.34/11
Hulk 36 287.67 12.51/12

The following table shows what every type of ice refines in:

The refining math of section 2 applies to ice as well, so nothing to add here !
