It was back in 2007 that I first posted an article on the Hawaii Superferry which was trying to establish inter-island ferry service amid battles with protesters which included the Sierra Club. A lot has happened in the interim and after limited service, the Sierra Club prevailed, the courts ruled against the Superferry, and they went bankrupt.
Now the Stars and Stripes has published an Associated Press article stating that the military may purchase 12 Superferry-type vessels for high-speed transport of troops and equipment. One of multiple ports is said to be Honolulu. The Sierra Club is once again reported to be in opposition for environmental reasons including hitting whales and transporting invasive species between islands. If there is another study, ALL environmental factors, including fuel consumption of air versus sea transport should be evaluated. The full article can be found HERE.
