Great Lakes Shipyard has been awarded a drydocking contract for Miller Boat Line’s M/V Put-In-Bay.
 
The ferry was hauled out using the 770-ton capacity Marine Travelift at Great Lakes Shipyard. The repair contract includes drydocking, inspection and repairs, hull cleaning and miscellaneous fabrication and steel repairs.
 
This is the first drydocking for M/V Put-In-Bay at Great Lakes Shipyard since Spring 2010, when Great Lakes Shipyard completed reconstruction work including fabrication and installation of a 40-foot mid-body extension and main engine repowering. The mid-body extension of the Put-in-Bay increased the length of the vessel from 96-feet to to 136-feet overall and nearly doubled its carrying capacity. The project also included the installation of new rudders, a new steering system, new main engine keel cooling system, generator overhauls, and new propellers.
 
Miller Boat Line’s fleet includes three additional all-steel passenger/vehicle ferries, each approximately 96-feet in length, which run on Lake Erie from Catawba to the islands of Put-in-Bay (South Bass Island) and Middle Bass Island, Ohio.
