Northwest Passage Across the Top of N. America

With all of this talk about Global warming, I am wondering if anyone here is planning to repeat Roald Amundsen's feat of sailing from the Alantic to the Bering sea, a tad more than a century ago? Crossing the top of North America. It was done again in late 2005 by Irish sailers on the 49 foot sloop 'Northabout'.
A few questions here:
What size vessel and of what material?
The crew number and if is it a mixed crew or not?
The planned duration of the voyage?
The support group for the voyage?
Prepositioned supplies? Or not?

There are other questions that can be asked.
Such as would you go?
Would you allow you significant other to go?

What other questions come to mind beside the sanity of those going?
