they could have saved a lot of money watching Grady's Ferry Folly in our news...

The Mat-Su Borough's $80 million, two-year-old ferry is up for sale without fulfilling the borough's original dream of giving commuters a new route between Anchorage and the Valley.
The boat has never docked at the borough dock or sailed in Cook Inlet. Only a handful of borough residents have ever seen the unique twin-hulled, ice-breaking vessel, the Susitna. It was built in Ketchikan and is docked near there. While the federal government paid for it, the ship is now the financial responsibility of the borough.

The cost now tops $88,000 a month, and there's no realistic plan for a ferry system any time soon. So the borough Assembly is looking at ending its years-long ferry venture, which officials have been pushing in one form or another since at least 1998.

At a special meeting to discuss the ferry last month, assemblyman Warren Keogh proposed making a quarterly insurance payment of about $124,000 and, separately, listing the ship with a broker to sell or offering it as surplus property on the federal register.
