aka, trans-Michigan and not Badger.  More on Badger later.

Lakes Express entered service in 2004, max speed at 34 kts., and has capacity for 44 cars, 12 motorcycles, and 248 passengers.

It crosses the Lake between Milwaukee and Muskegon in 150 minutes with up to 8 crew.

 

 

Until 1970, this run was made by the Milwaukee Clipper, launched 1904 and now languishing in Muskegon.   Here’s a more complete history on Milwaukee Clipper.

 

As promised, here are numbers of Badger for comparison purposes:  launched 1952, 24 kts. top speed, 18o cars and some trucks, 620 passengers, crew size from 50–60, and crossing time of 3 hours.
