I’ve worked as fill in deck hand on miller’s other ferry’s past 2 summers. Covid created build delays. Last word is completion for delivery end of April. The trip to PIB is all planned n crew assigned. Subject to change of course.

Thanks for that information. Interesting to note that the original completion date was late 2019, which would have been pre covid.

Its the ferry Mary Ann Market for Miller Boat Lines of Port Clinton Ohio. Their website mentions a 2021 delivery. The initial press release back in 2018 said a late 2019 delivery so it is at least 15 months behind that schedule. Haven't heard why but Covid could have certainly played a part, both at the ship yard and with the need for a new boat by the ferry company. The pandemic could have also caused supply issues with key components.

Lots of photos and drawings here at Miller Boat Lines website:

There is a new boat that has been under construction for over two years at Frasier Shipyard. It looks like a ferry? It sure is taking a long time to complete. Was it being built on speculation or is it being built for someone? Is there a completion date?
