Curt make his first voyage with the ferry? I enjoyed the pictures of last years early voyage on bbi-realestate.com. How about some new pics for this year?

I've been meaning to call Curt and find out. I need to update his webpage for 2003. I'll call tomorrow and see what he has to say.

I remember being on one of the first runs of the season about 10 years ago. The ice had broken up in the Straits, but was still out there. Couldn't see it from land but when Curt got us out a ways, we encountered huge ice floes. It didn't faze him a bit, though I was pretty nervous. He'd slow down and navigate around some, but for others he'd just run the Kristen D up over top of them and CRASH! the weight of the boat would split them in two. It was a wild ride - probably business as usual for Curt, but a unique experience for someone like me who only ever made the trip during warmer weather. #Crazy

I'm sure a change of underwear was in order upon reaching the island!

Without a doubt, the boat will run when weather permits. I wondered if anyone knew how it was looking. I know last year by this time he had made a trip. The pictures of that trip were awesome. I know we had more ice this year so I wondered how much the schedule would be altered from last year.

From the Cheboygan side, there is still alot of ice in the lake. If we get the right wind, some of it will blow out of here. the weather is also suppose to warm up also. I know Curt tries to make a trip by Easter, but I don't know this year. Just give him a call and he will let you know what is going on.

I just saw yesterday on bbi-realestate.com that Curt will probably not run until the beginning of May. I believe I saw that the Kirsten D had to go to Escanaba for her 5 year check-up or something like that. Does this mean that Hawk's won't be up and running by that time as well?
