I would hope that we have now learned our lessons regarding the lack of reliability and the economic fiasco the fast ferry, Fairweather, has created for the Lynn Canal community, as well as the state. Evidently, these aluminum lightweights cannot handle the needs and demands of the Inside Passage. Stop now. Both the Fairweather and the Chenega should be sold immediately, leased out or put to work somewhere else where they can be of some service to someone. They can't help us.
