Stop the fast ferry proposal
As a marine industry professional, the Ettalong fast ferry proposal must be stopped as soon as possible.
Building the infrastructure first before the feasibility of the run is proven would be a big mistake.
When the government gets a proposal from an experienced maritime operator, it could be taken seriously.
To build the infrastructure before any ferry has carried passengers to and from Sydney is madness.
Any ferry can operate from the existing wharf to prove the concept.
Will people use it, will it make money and how many days will it not operate due to weather?
This is a developer taking the piss out the residents of the Central Coast.
Don't fall for it.
When they come and say they will run for 12 months from the existing wharf to prove its viability, they should get a go.
Otherwise the developer will develop the wharf and no ferry will ever run from it.
It will ruin Ettalong.
This is a smoke screen.
