The S.S. Badger will be arriving in Manitowoc today. The 410 foot Badger is scheduled to arrive at noon, and will leave again at 2pm to return to Ludington Michigan. The Badger is the largest car ferry to ever sail on Lake Michigan, and has been doing so for over 60 years. She began service back in 1953, and was designed specifically to withstand the rough conditions of Lake Michigan. The historic vessel was designated as a historical landmark last year, which came after being named both a Wisconsin, and a Michigan Historic site back in 1997. The Badger will be making daily trips across Lake Michigan to and from Ludington beginning today, and ending on October 15th.
