No doubt the sea chests are full of ice. Slob ice chips enter through the plate filter and eventually subplant the water in the sea chest. Usually vessels also have a deep suction to avoid ice entering nearer the waterline. This may not be the case, I'm only speculating based on experiencing first hand having to shake ice out of a duplex filter in order to maintain sea suction. You have a great group of photos along the seaway. I was in Sorel-Tracy from 1989 to 1991 working at MIL Tracy.
