My simple statement about improving the Anacortes terminal is this. We don't need to improve the terminal unless it is another ferry slip and more ferries. If we have more ferries we can move people quickly and efficiently enough that there would be not much time to see and do anything at the terminal itself. I don't want to see billions spent on a terminal when what we simply need is more ferries, and more reliable ferries. It absolutely defeats the purpose of traveling to and from the San Juan islands if we cannot travel because too few boats are here to serve our needs. So no, please do not spend millions on a terminal instead of new ferries, as a resident it is difficult enough to get reservations to leave my home for necessary travel.Report
