Last night as the sun set in the western sky, the SS Badger came into the port of Ludington for the last sailing of the season. Everything was quite routine in 2015. The new ash retention system was installed. It was a first and designed exclusively for the Badger. Lots of freight came through the docks headed for Wisconsin and vice versa. The Badger never issues passenger count information, but all reports say ridership was up this year. WMOM congratulates the management and crew on this year's season.
