HI Superferry: The Goal...JHSV

It's not necessarily a bad goal...just not right for these sanctuary waters. It would be better to just tell it to the people straight.

The Joint High Speed Vessel program is a Navy-led acquisition of a platform intended to support users in the Department of the Navy and Department of the Army. The Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV) program is a cooperative effort for a high-speed, shallow draft vessel intended for rapid intra-theater transport of medium sized cargo payloads. JHSV will reach speeds of 35-45 knots and allow for the rapid transit and deployment of conventional or special forces as well as equipment and supplies.

The Navy plans to award Phase One preliminary design contracts in early 2008, and a detail design and construction contract in the fourth Quarter of FY08.
