S.S. Badger Sets Sail

By NBC26 Staff. CREATED May 26, 2012

MANITOWOC, WI - The S.S. Badger set sail again Saturday morning. This is after strong winds and engine problems ran it aground Thursday afternoon during its first voyage of the season.

Hundreds of passengers were trapped on-board the car-ferry for hours. Yesterday the ferry went back to Ludington, Michigan with just crew members on-board. Repairs were successful, so the Badger will cross Lake Michigan again as scheduled.
