All I ever hear about are the ferries costing so much money to run and here we take one of the biggest money makers off line and run it on the North Lynn Canal run and then take the Fairweather off the North Lynn Canal run (which is what the boat was designed to run) and run it to Sitka 5 days a week (a huge loss).
What are we doing? Trying to
destroy the ferry system? I believe a day boat system would work
but we still need the main line ferries running to Bellingham.
Many people can't or don't want to drive through Canada and with
only one boat running to Bellingham it will be over sold every
trip. Last summer both boats were full now we are only going
to run one?
