It won’t be too long before the ghost town mentality of the Ludington Marina, now hauntily empty with ice replacing boats, will be full of activity again. Warm weather is just around the corner and then dock by dock will be occupied with boats.
Be they for fishing or for pleasure trips will again be taken onto Lake Michigan for another summer’s activites. Dodging the ferry boats that also occupy the harbor, those pleasure boats will yield the right of way to their larger cousins enroute to the big lake.
Always take caution, though, and check with the Coast Guard to determine the condtions on Lake Michigan lest your pleasure cruise turn into a nightmare. As for now, get out those icebreakers and start chipping away!
