Rescue on the lake
The Miller Ferry has provided safe and reliable service to the Lake Erie Islands for more than 100 years. For what may be the first time ever, one of the ferry boats had to tow off another ferry boat from a submerged reef to the southeast of Put-in-Bay. The ferry boat was fully loaded with construction materials for Middle Bass and the lake was at low levels because of strong winds from the west. The captain of the towing ferry expertly towed the other ferry back to the dock at Put-in-Bay without any further problems. The cargo was then transferred to another ferry to make it to Middle Bass.
