Does Superferry churn up vile crud from harbor bottom?

by Larry Geller

Brad Parsons continues to count passengers and vehicles when he has a chance. His counts show no significant increase in ridership so far. See HI Superferry: Count, pics, etc. for 4/21/08 for the numbers, a link to some new pictures, and this interesting observation:

"Maka'ala" John wanted to say he has noticed something that opponents on Maui have not mentioned in the media. John said that, "when the vessel is departing and backing up that its jet propulsion churns up the matter on the bottom of the harbor as the vessel turns and accelerates its engines to leave the harbor." John further stated he, "has been noticing what he thinks is the diminishing quality of the water in the harbor as a result." This is interesting because Jonathan Jay noticed and mentioned at the Belt Collins "EIS" Kauai hearing a similar thing at, "Nawiliwili Harbor from the two days there with the jets churning up the bottom and a septic smell came from the harbor afterward." Jonathan Jay asked that that be looked at in the "EIS".
