Meet the Captains and Crews
Captain Nathan Schley
Captain Nathan Schley grew up in stepdad John Selvick’s pilothouse and learned to drive boats at an early age. For years, he has worked a relief captain for John and the resident captain for their Sturgeon Bay operation. This year, when John is too ill to come north for the ice-breaking season, Nathan has to step into the legend’s shoes. He must take the helm of the massive Mary E. Hannah and run ice-breaking on his own for the first time.
A man who has been on boats all of his working life, Andy Miller is the port engineer for the Sturgeon Bay operation of Selvick Marine and Calumet Fleeting. A seasoned sailor with a sharp wit, Andy keeps the fleet—and their captains—ready to go on a moment’s notice.
