John Garibaldi on HI Superferry place in history"The

"CEO of Hawaii Superferry has put the service in a global and historical context. “You look at the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands, New Zealand, the English Channel and the Baltics and it’s a common way of life,” he told the Honolulu Advertiser earlier this summer. “It’s a technology that’s really an outgrowth of the Polynesian double-hull canoes.”"

John Garibaldi's above quote is interesting for it's historical inaccuracy yet pertainence. New Zealand no longer has a fast ferry operating there. The Canary Islands are where thus far the most whales have been killed by fast ferries. Fast ferries bear no relation to the operation of Polynesian double-hull canoes.

Aloha, Brad
