Miller Boat Contract to Great Lakes Group

Monday, October 05, 2009

Great Lakes Shipyard, a division of The Great Lakes Group, has been awarded a contract by Miller Boat Line, Put-in-Bay, Ohio, to fabricate and install a new 40-ft mid-body extension in the passenger/vehicle ferry Put-in-Bay.
 
The contract was awarded on August 17, 2009, and all work is underway at Great Lakes Shipyard's state-of-the-art facilities on the South Bank of the Old River Channel, on Cleveland's Cuyahoga River. The project is slated for completion by year end.
 
Miller Boat Line operates a fleet of four all-steel passenger/vehicle ferries, each approximately 96-ft in length, which run on Lake Erie from Catawba to the islands of Put-in-Bay (South Bass Island) and Middle Bass Island, Ohio.
 
The mid-body extension of the Put-in-Bay will make the vessel 136-ft overall in length and will enable it to carry up to eight additional full size automobiles or an additional 100 passengers. The project also includes the installation of new rudders, a new steering system, and a new main engine keel cooling system.
