The “Human Tugboat,” as Jim Dreyer is now called after being dubbed a “Superhuman” for pulling a 27-ton car ferry across Newport Beach Harbor on the popular TV series Stan Lee’s Superhumans, will now pull a Pfeiffer Lincoln MKC on a barge to Mackinac Island (where motorized vehicles are not allowed) as the first human-powered car ferry to the island.

This feat of strength, entitled the Pfeiffer Lincoln Murdick’s Fudge Run, will begin at 6:00 a.m. off the American Legion Memorial Beach in St. Ignace, on August 15th.
