The Sykes is a ship that I've only seen as she passes through the Straits of Mackinac. She is almost exclusively used in Northern Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. She will typically go from Port Inland or Port Dolemite and the Ports in Indiana. Occasionally, she will make stops at some of the Western Michigan Ports but it seems like she does this on days where I can't head over. When I saw that she was going to be in Grand Haven on a Saturday, I decided that I would go see her.
It was pretty cool to finally see this ship up close. She is even more impressive that way.
