Canadian Coast Guard Cutter Limnos arrives in Put-in-Bay at 12:26pm on Thursday. It departs at 12:49pm, after appearing to take a sounding and sharing a brief communication with Miller Boat Line ferry, Islander, on VHF channels 16 and 8.
The vessel’s name originates from “limnology,” the study of inland waters with emphasis on biological, chemical, physical, and geological attributes, according to the CCG. It is Canada’s principal research ship in the Great Lakes. The 1968 ship is classified as “Mid Shore Science Vessel” and has Burlington, Ontario (Lake Ontario), as home port.

Put-in-Bay Property Owners Board submitted a letter requesting Put-in-Bay Village Council review a regional waterline from the mainland. The response from Village Council was the arrangement of a meeting with Ohio EPA representatives. This Mainland Waterline Discussion is scheduled for Thursday, September 5, 2019, at NOON in the Put-in-Bay Town Hall.
Please note that the regional waterline (from the mainland) issue was considered a top priority by PiB Property Owners Association at the June 15th meeting:
“Pres. Jim Duffy thanked all of the speakers and asked the property owners to decide which issue they would be most interested in the Board to concentrate on. After much discussion, the membership decided by voice vote to concentrate on the water issues.”
Please attend this VERY IMPORTANT discussion.
