Combined Ferry Schedule Calendar 2017

Post by Midwest Ed » Sat Mar 05, 2016 3:22 am

I made this calendar that combines the schedules of all Isle Royale ferry operations:

I removed the Roman Numerals from the names of the boats. Since the alphabetic names are unique, the Roman Numerals do not add to the readability. Added RED highlight to schedules that are new for each date range.

Thanks for putting this together. One correction: The Monday - Tuesday trips on the Voyaguer II don't begin until May 30 (see note on the V II website).

You may want to add a disclaimer that it's not official, verify with the operators, use at your own risk, or similar. Ya know how things are these days :roll: .

Working on update for 2017. I have all needed data except for the Ranger III's end date.

The complete operational dates for the Ranger III have been announced by the NPS, so the combined schedule has been updated.
