Kelleys Island Ferry Boat Line ferry at Great Lakes Shipyard for five-year drydocking

Great Lakes Shipyard was awarded a drydocking contract by Kelleys Island Ferry Boat Line for the M/V Carlee Emily. Maintenance work includes five-year drydocking, U.S. Coast Guard inspection and surveys, as well as miscellaneous routine repairs. The ferry was hauled out April 10 using the 770-MT Mobile Marine Travelift. Work is expected to be completed later this month, allowing the ferry to return to service as soon as possible.

This is the second time the M/V Carlee Emily was drydocked at Great Lakes Shipyard and the fifth drydocking for Kelleys Island Ferry Boat Line. Other Kelleys Island vessels drydocked at the shipyard include M/V Kayla Marie and Juliet Alicia.
