Middle Bass Island Captain Becomes Local Hero

Captain Harry exhibits satisfaction after running support for Sonny-S Boat Line.

Middle Bass Island resident Captain Harry Foley stepped up to fill the void in ferry transportation Wednesday, 30 June, to Saturday, 3 July.  When Sonny-S Boat Line suspended operations, Inter-Island Charters filled the gap for transport from Middle Bass Island to The Boardwalk, Put-in-Bay.  The charter service is owned by Captain Marty Harayda, also of Middle Bass Island.

Captain Harry reports, “I hauled over 300 people from Wednesday to Saturday morning!”  The Sonny-S returned to service on Saturday afternoon and resumes a regular summer schedule.

Ms. Aquilla and her family, from Rocky River, Ohio, have spent summers on Middle Bass Island throughout her youth.

In early June she won the U.S National Title in shot put.  Yesterday, Aquilla’s best throw of 18.61 meters put her on the USA Olympic Track & Field Team!
