Ferry plan must float on its own

  #

There has been talk for more than two years of restarting Lake Michigan ferry service between Muskegon and Milwaukee, a route that was last served by the Milwaukee Clipper until it went out of operation in 1970.

A group of Milwaukee investors has formed Lake Express LLC with hopes of establishing a high-speed ferry service that would reach speeds of up to 35 mph and cross the lake in about two hours. Lake Michigan Carferry's SS Badger currently is the only ferry plying Lake Michigan, traveling between Ludington and Manitowoc, Wis.  more...

PC man arrested after boating incident

  #
A Port Clinton man had little luck Wednesday out on the Portage River -- first he lost his friend's boat, then he was arrested. Richard A. Long, 49, of 3095 W. Wayne St. was charged by the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated after a run-in with the U.S. Coast Guard.

Coast Guard officials at Station Marblehead say Long borrowed his friend's 10-foot aluminum boat to head out into the Portage River on Wednesday afternoon. About 500 feet out the engine fell off, and Long paddled it to shore. His mistake, however, was not tying the boat up, according to Coast Guard reports. more...
