A harbor with two coupled rectangular basins is subjected to periodic incident waves. Ignoring friction the scattering problem is solved by the method of matched asymptotics for narrow junctions. The example of two identical basins is analyzed in detail for the resonant spectrum and response. It is shown that for certain modes the inner basin is less shielded.
