Hmm. Not that this is a thing–but it MIGHT be. Why not a Russian/Eskimo colony ON the ice sheet/bridge, having reverted to subsistence hunting of grikakka or some cold-loving seal analog. Easy to see why the Impies might not have found them, even having made a cursory survey. It’s all ice up there. What do they want with it? Why visit again–except possibly to hunt the seal analogs. It’s even possible some of their colonials know about them, but have kept their lips zipped for fear, earlier, of the HNBC moving in and monopolizing the trade like they were trying to do with everything else.

To give an idea of these boats see the following skin covered whaling boats from the following book:

The frame of such a boat, note text raw wallrus skin used as covering, hmm, Gri-kaaka skin? :

The prototypes for native Gri-Kaaka boats?

To be honest I thought that some of the work of boats by the the lemurons were skin boats. At least the description of them in the early books made me feel that way and that is an obvious and easy way to make bows when you need them fast and cheep
