Venture Captain Ihab

Venture Captain Ihab

Ihab Shaker moved to Canada from his native Egypt, and the sea captain has a dream of bringing a ferry service to the Great Lakes. He thinks commuters and tourists will love a regular, traffic-free run from Toronto to Port Dalhousie in the Niagara Peninsula. Regular ferries stopped plying the Great Lakes a generation ago but Shaker is risking everything on his venture. He borrowed money from friends and family and maxed out his credit cards to be able to get a bank loan for the $700,000 to buy the ferry. Will it pay off?
