  2. the master of the ship has taken into account:

    2. the operating characteristics and condition of the ship and of any equipment on board designed for the purpose of detecting ice hazards,
    3. the probability of a change in the ice conditions during the intended transit through the zone, and the probable effect of the change, and
    4. weather conditions;
