Sonny-S Boat Line did not begin seasonal operations this year due to vessel condition issues.  As indicated on the Sonny-S Ferry Web page, the boat is undergoing extensive repairs and a hull refit.  It is unclear when regular service between Middle Bass Island and Put-in-Bay will resume, but business owners hope to start before Independence Day.

The Sonny-S ferry and the Boardwalk Harbor Taxis passed the annual USCG inspection.  Electrical systems, steering mechanisms, water pump float switches, life preservers, navigation lights, and mechanical/structural components all received a thorough examination.  Updated Certificates of Inspection (COI) will be issued by the USCG Toledo MSU (Marine Safety Unit).
