Despite environmentalist concerns that the proposed Superferry is being rammed through the state legislature without proper analysis, the plan to run giant car-carrying catamarans throughout the Hawaiian chain is amazingly popular, according to a recent poll published in today’s Pacific Business News. Now I know that it seems incredibly coincidental that the poll was commissioned by Superferry, Inc., which has more than a vested interest in its outcome and shows overwhelming support for the plan on every island, but I’m sure it’s all on the up and up. According to the poll, supposedly 86 percent of state residents want to see the giant ferries launched. The only island that has anything resembling opposition to the Superferry is our dear, sweet Maui, where just 50 percent of those polled “strongly support” it. Anyway, all these numbers have flushed the state legislature with super courage, and they went and restored all the $40 million in Kahului Harbor improvements cut by the state Senate a couple weeks ago.
