Speakout!

ISSUE:

Proponents of a high-speed, passengers-only ferry service linking Annapolis, Kent Island and Baltimore held a sea trial last week, with a 22-minute voyage the group hopes will show the feasibility of the idea.

Several backers of the idea rode a 38-foot powerboat between City Dock and Matapeake State Park on Kent Island, the latest effort by a committee of city officials, ferry fans and urban planners. Their draft proposal calls for two-vessel service from the harbor in Baltimore to Kent Island and then to City Dock. Commuters would shell out from $7 to $12 each way. Ferry commuters would feed into shuttle and bus services in Baltimore's Fells Point and Annapolis.

YOUR VIEW:

Could a ferry service succeed in Annapolis? Would you use it?
