12/14/2010: "Cute Boat, But.."


Editor:

Thank you for the heads up on WSF (Washington State Ferries management) plan to present the San Juan Islands with the "Chetzemoka."

The current inter-island boat, the Evergreen State, carries 87 vehicles. The super-Class Yakima, Hyak, etc, carry 144. The Chelan carries 124.

The Chetzemoka carries 64!

So the cute little San Juan Islands should get the Cute little Chetzemoka.

Tell the WSF management to take this cute little 800 million dollar piece of waste and deposit it elsewhere!

Totally amazing is the "NEW" (cost a fortune) Chetzemoka is actually SLOWER than the ancient Super Class boats. (If it did 25 Kts the poor thing might have an actual net worth.)
