Ferry Buyer Not Sure How He’ll Use Them

After reading a wire story a few days ago about the state getting another potential buyer for the steel-electric ferries after a company bailed on its plan to scrap them in Mexico, I tried to track down the new guy and see what he intends to do with four 80-year-old boats. I found him and called his home and work, but he didn’t get back to me.

This morning, however, the Tacoma paper had a story about it. He sounds like an interesting character. The gist of the story is he doesn’t know what he’d do with the boats. There are possibilities both on land and water. Read it here.

Some commenters from our wire story said they should turn them into floating casinos. What would you do with them?
