You may see some very angry letters in the paper from fellow commuters.  Mine may be one of them.  When it all comes down to it, what we want and what would benefit the community is “regular and reliable” ferry service.  More frequent boats would be a huge plus ~ but we’ve dealt with that for the past 7 years.  I don’t see things getting better and it’s time to move on.

We’re angry.  We’ve invested lots of time, money and effort into trying to make Bremerton a better place.  We moved to a town which was pretty down-and-out.  Did many of us from Seattle move to the “nicer” but boring parts of Bremerton?  No.  We purchased in the older parts of West Bremerton, the areas with the more interesting houses and sketchy neighborhoods.  When we leave, our homes will become rentals and the downward cycle begins again…

Via Kitsap Sun: Reader: “For the Record, I’m Complaining About Ferries”

shockerrrrOK, so it took an hour since we last checked for a gimp Bainbridge run to steal a boat from Bremerton. File this under SHOCKINGLY PREDICTABLE. Bremerton’s down to one boat for at least the rest of the day. Smart money says to check with WSF tomorrow before you get to the termingal in the morning and discover that your usual boat is servicing Bainbridge.
