Ships Anchored off Bartlett Point

UPDATE (7:45 p.m.) - Griffon is anchored awaiting the arrival of upbound traffic and will assist in clearing ice from their path to the lake.

UPDATE (4:30 p.m.) - All three ships have left anchorage and have reached the lake.

It was confirmed that the Seaway pilot boat was landlocked due to ice conditions in the Cape Vincent area, resulting in the hold up.

ORIGINAL REPORT - Federal EMS anchored off Bartlett Point today just after Noon. About an hour later, Federal Shimanto joined them.

It was not immediately known as to why, though large ice floe continues to move downriver and heavy fog has laid over the region.

Last night, Federal Satsuki dropped anchor near Carelton Island as heavy fog set in.

If we learn more, we will share it.
