I am sure the residents of Hoonah will feel "connected" to the Aurora, which operates in Prince William Sound. And Wrangell folks will gain a "sense of identity" by having their city's name on a ship that will be taken out of service in a few months. What a waste of $37,000. But then, it makes about as much good business sense as moving the ferry headquarters to Ketchikan, doesn't it?
