Re: C&O Lake Michigan Ferries, was Crappy Job

I had the great good fortune to sail on the City Of Milwaukee across Lake Michigan late in her carrier when she was the Ann Arbor spare boat - filled with freight cars & a few large trucks with my little VW tucked in behind.
She was an oil-burning steamer with reciprocating engines.  I got to go below & watch the engines work.  She was not in the best of shape with steam leaks & rod knocks, but she was beautiful.
It was a great experience!!
