Hopes were dashed: the east side of the bay was lined with 1" sea ice. The western edge was navigable, but within 20 meters it was impassible. I had to crush myself a big hole to turn around within, then moved south to the rtg field where I was able to harvest (within the thinner ice) what was needed for the day. It took a while, it was cold, it was a little risky - but it was actually kind of fun.
