Ferryboat Myrtidiotissa got stuck in the harbor entrance yesterday afternoon. The probable cause is the amount of sand/mud that has accumulated on the sea bottom. With strong winds the sand/mud moves more and more in the mouth of the harbor and boats can get stuck. At some point the harbor needs to be dug out. Skopelosnews remembers the harbor being dug out many years ago with machines like this on the photo below. Will that happen again soon? I fear for the summer with more ferryboats coming into the harbor.
