    I think property owners in Galveston County should get some advantage when boarding ferries.

    Is it true that they've spent almost three times the value of what the ferry cost, in maintenance repairs? And back & forth to Houston?

    What a shame, who ever is responsible on the procurement of this vessel should fix the issues or else we the people will held you responsible & accountable for the wasted money.

    If that think were a car, the County could get its money back under the Texas Lemon Law.

    If this were a private business, the faulty equipment would have been fixed or replaced or failing all tossed out and chalked up to bad luck rather than keep throwing good money after bad, with no improvement..
    The difference seems to be in whose money is being used.

    Someone's wallet is a little thicker.... Just my opinion.
