Great Lakes Shipyard of Cleveland, Ohio, finished maintenance and repairs on Miller Boat Line’s ferry William Market for its U.S. Coast Guard five-Year inspection. The work included repairing the ramp, installing hydraulic silencers, hull painting, blasting and painting ballast tanks, installing two new props and painting the upper deck.  In addition to this, all of the ferry’s exterior fiberglass bench seats were replaced with new aluminum bench seats. The William Market is an all-steel passenger and vehicle vessel which was built in 1993, is 96 feet long and Coast Guard approved to carry 500 Passengers. This is the second time this year Miller Boat Line, the vessel’s owner, has entrusted one of its vessels to Great Lakes Shipyard. Earlier this year Great Lakes Shipyard completed a 40 ft. long mid-body extension and repowering of the M/V Put-In-Bay. Miller Boat Line is the only scheduled means of transporting freight, cars and commercial vehicles to Put-in-Bay and Middle Bass islands departing from Catawba, Ohio.
