Layup Photos

Below are more photos of the vessels in winter layup at Erie.

The ice on Presque Isle Bay is currently several inches thick, and dozens of people took advantage of the beautiful, if not warm, weather on Saturday to ice fish, or just walk on the ice. With temperatures expected in the high 40s tomorrow, there may not be many more days for ice recreation this winter.
