It's time to add the broken ice to the diorama.  Because I'm modelling a canal, boats will travel along and break the ice along the canal. The area to the right won't generally be broken as the boats are up to 70' long and will travel in a more or less straight line from the bottom of the lock down to the next lock.

Sadly, I've never made it to this lock in ice... this diorama is as near as I may get.
