Onaway Workers Building First of Its Kind Boat for Pictured Rocks Kayaking Company

It’s something that’s never been seen on the Great Lakes before, and it’s being made right here in Northern Michigan.

Workers at Moran Iron Works in Onaway are hard at work on a first of its kind offshore kayak launching passenger boat.

The project was commissioned by the Pictured Rocks Kayaking Company to take tourists on guided kayak tours along the national lakeshore.

Photojournalist Matthew Myers went to Onaway Wednesday to find out more about this unique vessel.
