12/7/2011 - Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. - Reid Metals of Dafter, Mich., near Sault Ste. Marie, is the successful bidder on the long-inactive Lake Michigan ferry Arthur K. Atkinson. The vessel was sold Tuesday morning by court order on the steps of the Chippewa County Courthouse in Sault Ste. Marie. The winning bid was $100,000. The new owner has 45 days to tow the vessel from the old Interlake dock at DeTour, Mich., to the MCM Marine dock in Sault Ste. Marie, where it is expected to be cut up for scrap, with work beginning immediately. 12/21/2011 - The long-inactive, former Ann Arbor Railroad carferry Arthur K. Atkinson arrived at the MCM dock in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Tuesday afternoon under tow of the MCM tugs William C. Gaynor and Mohawk. They departed the old Interlake dock at DeTour, where the Atkinson had been laid up for several years, around 9 a.m. Scrapping of the Atkinson is expected to begin shortly, following asbestos removal, and should be done by spring.
Should be all scrap by now.
