“Live like you’re in a canoe” that is the message from movie “Hawaii a message in the waves” So the arrival of the Hawaii Super Ferry has a lot of people quite twitchy.
Being able to take your car interisland is a great idea, so long as you don’t bring invasive species with you. Seeing the Islands from the ocean (I have no doubt) will be a beautiful experience, but what about the creatures under the water? What will they undergo as more waste is dumped in their backyard and the noise and vibration of this new vessel becomes a daily occurrence? I’m in support of affordable travel for more people but the traffic is bad now...... try adding 866 people and 282 cars to the commute, it's not going to be pretty.
Life becomes more main land and less Island with every change and that to me is heartbreaking. Yet I go to Costo, Home Depot, Kinko’s & K-Mart and am glad they are there when I need their services. I’m a canoe girl at heart, but if my only choices for inter island travel were canoe or ferry, I’d be wanting a ticket not a paddle! It's an internal dichotomy that keeps arising, so I'll keep searching for the answer and let you know when I find it.
