Austal fires the welder who spoke to KKCR about the Superferry
Austal USA has apparently fired Wayne Jenkins, the welder who was interviewed on KKCR two weeks ago.
Jenkins was the only one of the three interviewees still working for Austal at the time. The three alleged that there were cracks and other defects in the ferry. Go to the above article to hear the interview if you haven't had a chance yet. Jenkins stated that he worked on the Superferry's sister ship but related what he knew about the Superferry as well.
The allegations made in the interview would appear to have great public interest. Perhaps the mainstream media will pick it up so that a wider audience could be aware of the allegations, and so that the ferry company might decide to reply.
