Inland Lakes Management’s S/S ALPENA recently departed Great Lakes Shipyard, Cleveland, Ohio, upon completion of the vessel’s winter work projects. The Shipyard performed a variety of work on the vessel during its layup period which consisted of basic repairs and other general maintenance items.

The S/S ALPENA is the second of three lakers to complete winter work at Great Lakes Shipyard this season. Interlake Steamship Company’s ATB DORTHY ANN and PATHFINDER was the first, departing last weekend, and American Steamship Company’s AMERICAN COURAGE is currently wrapping up its seasonal projects.
