New 144-car ferry

The Seattle Times reports that construction is slated to begin in early 2012 on a new 144-car ferry that will replace the Evergreen State. The project will take 27 months. This is the good news. The bad news is that the cost seems exorbitant and that in the current economy some of the boats in the Evergreen State class will be operating far beyond the recommended 60 year lifespan before being retired. More information is available in this article which appeared Tuesday in the Kitsap Sun.

Both articles would be worth reviewing prior to the FCP meeting on Saturday.
