My Turn: Cascade Point ferries deserve a serious look
A few months back Robin Taylor floated the idea that our northern ferry terminus should be moved to Cascade Point, just past Echo Cove. His idea was to run two conventional ferries on shuttle service between Cascade Point and Haines and Skagway.

Such a system would substantially reduce marine highway operating costs, result in quick, more predictable service and provide much greater vehicle and freight capacity than fast ferry service.
