Yesterday at 2pm the popular free Merrimac Ferry began shuttling passengers across lake Wisconsin. The Merrimac Ferry is free and is a popular attraction for both locals and visitors to the area who take their cars or simply park and ride. We shot this shot video clip yesterday (April 11, 2014) as the ferry came into Merrimac on one of it’s early runs.
Oh, and by the way, those orange ropes in the water, well those are the cables that are used to pull the ferry back and forth across the river. BOATERS avoid these cables.. hitting one would be bad.
