American Courage arrives Sturgeon Bay for Winter Layup

Last week Tuesday, American Steamship’s American Courage arrived in Sturgeon Bay for winter layup. The Courage‘s arrival brings the total of ships in Sturgeon Bay so far to five. They are American Spirit, American Courage, Arthur M. Anderson, John G. Munson, and the tug Invincible. The carferry Badger will not be staying for the remainder of the winter; when her five-year survey is completed, she will be towed back to Ludington, MI. The Alpena was not expected to stay in Sturgeon Bay originally, but due to the recent fire on board, she may be staying for the whole winter so repairs can be completed. The cause of that fire has still not been determined, but the Sturgeon Bay Fire Chief says that the fire was accidental and it had nothing to do with the work being performed on board the Alpena. Stay tuned for more information!
