"If we had a port" reminds me of the Scarecrow singing "If I only had a brain." Existing ports are struggling and there's no way we'll have one here.

I think what Jay is getting at is it would take years to get the first container unloaded even if it was approved.

That too, but the premise was that if we had a port up and running now, we would get rich as a result of the looming ILA strike.

I would ask the original poster again, how would that work?

If we had a port up and running, why would ours remain open and make us "rich?" when the other east ports would be struck?

Surely you do not blsapheme by envisioning a non-union port.

Back to the Topix at hand, There will NEVER be a port in St. Marys, shipping, barge or otherwise. I'm taking bets.

Senora, I thought more of you than that.

And where did you get your information that the ports are struggling ? Bullshit only thing in America that is making money.

Some of the smaller ports are struggling, losing market share, and the larger ports are struggling to fund infrastructure improvements to deal with the Post-Panamax vessels.

Ther are both barriers to entry, and significant economies of scale that make the idea of a new port unrealistic.

St. Marys port volume peaked as a transshipment point to Florida when Panton-Leslie had the monopoly down there.

Well then, is it not your civic duty to have me arrested for said terroristic threat? I'm available for arrest most any time.
