i like to watch seasons wake up. The icycles that come & go and snow sweaking away. Well we built a new river dock last summer and it thaws funny. We've had about 3 snowmelts on it, and every time the outside end (about the outside half) clears off first. It's all decked with 1/2" treated plywood, i rolled some sealer on the whole thing, same l-angle frame. The outside end is closer to the open river and there's still ice along shore but i wouldn't think that would make enough difference. any ideas?

Cold inside ice choked river banks last to thaw. Warmer moving water to the outside end radiates upward heat, thaws first.

well the water's open cuz it's always moving but i suppose it could absorb a couple extra degrees during the day. It's only been open for maybe 1/8 mile upstream then comes from under lake ice so it's a hard call.
