North end (Lloyd’s) not bad ice but scattered scabs of 1 inch high ice from unmelted slush will make for bumpy ride. Further South scabs are more frequent, probably unpleasant. No shell ice at North end. Grade 5. Access at Lloyds fine. Town beach was water at ramp yesterday, probably OK along shore. Awaiting reports from Dammy (Bunting) and Megunticook (Squibb).
