I am getting few residents asking me why the ships are sitting out in the lake, just off the Beach Strip as this week when there were seven vessels anchor out there. Most think that there is an issue entering the harbour, but what these ships are doing is staying out of high winds out of the west. Some are waiting to use a dock at Bronte and don't want the large waves to bash them against the dock or stay away from the high seas and freezing mist that build up quite a bit of ice on the decks.

Three of the seven waiting;

Ice build up on an inbound cement barge.
