Tim Van Horn writes: "I'm not sure what the purpose of this tug boat ramming the same stretch of ice over and over was, but I stood there for a half hour and they barely made a dent in the mass pile of ice on the river in Belleville. They burned up lots of diesel though so maybe it's to stimulate the economy." source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_9AMimmPa4

Shaun Vary comments (Nov. 13, 2017): "I'm not sure which one of the Harrisons actually own the A. L. Killaly. She is usually tied up at the Harrison fishery dock at Cressy. She is currently registered to them under a numbered company: 1662140 Ontario Inc, 612 Cressy Bayside Road, Picton, ON."
Christopher Howitt notes (Nov. 13, 2017): "The photo from Dec/2016 was taken at the Adolphus Reach just east of Glenora Ferry after leaving the Picton Terminal. I am assuming that she is heading for winter layup.
The most recent photo was taken at the work site at the Millhaven dock that is used by the Amherst Island ferry (Frontenac II). Photo below.
I noticed that her Port of Registry is Brockville.
