Businessman dreams of ferry across Lake Michigan

Ludington Daily News:
"Brian McCaughrin of McCaughrin Marine Systems, Inc. has a dream — to move people and vehicles from Frankfort to Algoma, Wis., potentially offering a third ferry service across Lake Michigan.

He said he had expressed an interest in the S.S. Spartan as a possible vessel for the business at one time. The Spartan, owned by Lake Michigan Carferry Service, has been sitting idle at dock in Ludington since 1979.

LMC released a statement this morning — following a request from the Daily News — saying that it has had no communication with McCaughrin regarding the purchase of the S.S. Spartan and that the vessel is not for sale."
