SS Badger returns to slip

May 7, 2019

The SS Badger is back at home in its slip after extensive renovations that took place during the winter. The Badger was moved back into place Saturday afternoon at the Lake Michigan Carferry (LMC) docks, and will be ready for the start of the season on Friday, May 10, according to LMC Vice President Patrick McCarthy.

Work began in December 2018 to replace the carferry’s docking walls in Ludington and Manitowoc, Wisconsin, and construction continued through winter and spring.

Some ground restoration work still remains at both sites, according to McCarthy, but they’re both expected to be ready by start of the season on Friday.
