      PERE MARQUETTE 22 (US 224122) was a steel, twin-screw car ferry built in 1924 by the Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company (Hull No. 210) for the Pere Marquette Railway, for Lake Michigan service. Dimensions: 247.9 x 56.2 x 19.2, 2985 gross tons and 1501 net tons. Powered originally by triple expansion engines of 20 1/2”, 34", and 56" diameter of cylinders by 36" stroke, built by the shipyards. Sister vessel was PERE MARQUETTE 21, described in this column in the December Telescope. Twice in her life this car ferry has undergone alterations. In the Late Thirties her passenger capacity was increased by the addition of cabins running the length of the upper deck. In 1953 she was lengthened by 40 feet, reboilered, and repowered with steeple compound Skinner Uniflow engines of l9 1/2" and 43" diameter of cylinders by 26" stroke. The speed was increased to 18 m.p.h.
