Re: SS BADGER

So nice to see these pics! I rode across Lake Michigan back in the mid 50's Ludington to Manitowoc on both the Badger and the Spartan. Used to love standing on the aft deck and watching them load the freight cars, balancing from one track to the other to keep the ship from listing. 
     One trip was a rough passage with pretty much our whole family throwing up, not fun, but all the rest were great. If I remember correctly it was a little over 4 hours to cross.
