The CCG Sipu Muin is seen in this photograph right up on the Municipal Beach during the afternoon
of October 18th, 1998. She had transited downbound through the canal earlier however once she arrived at Port Weller and
entered Lake Ontario the westerly winds were found to be much to strong for navigation. Instead of continuing down the
lake her captain ran her up on the unoccupied beach where she stayed for the night. Winds were gusting over 60 km/hr.
