Saturday Learning Series: 47 Years with the Washington Island Ferries

June 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Washington Island Ferry Line, Inc. remains an island-based business with an island-based workforce, now in its 82nd year of service. Dick Purinton spent 47 years aboard Washington Island Ferries, working his way up from deckhand to captain, general manager to company president. He’ll share stories from his time on the ferries, including challenges in vessel design, construction, and upkeep of the vessels, but also land-based issues such as protective break walls, frequent dredging, substantial piers, and supporting shore facilities.
