Around 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 19, the high-speed ferry entered Muskegon Lake. Crew were in town to test the dock and train for the start of the ship's season, which starts April 28.

It's the ship's 14th season shuttling passengers and vehicles back and forth between Milwaukee and Muskegon.

The Lake Express continues to rely on the speed of the ship to attract passengers who want to steer clear of traffic in Chicago.
