AIS Report from Frozen Baltic

Hi all..

Thought you might find this report from a frozen Baltic interesting..
6 ships are stuck in the ice,some with passengers on board.
Notice how Vaxholm has been laboring the past few days whilst the
other ships are just being moved around in circles by the tide,following
the ice mass.
