^^^ well for me it was because I saw guys coming over from Oahu and picking our opihis to take home and sell, and I saw a couple fuckers that came over and were poaching on my uncles ranch. That why I didn't like it, some people have different reasons, those are mine.
If the people poaching were brought over by the superferry, I think the issue in that case is with those idiots rather than the ferry.
As for the opihi I can remember when o-tech on the big island had PLENTY. No super ferry there and still all of it is gone.
Aside for some idiots that gave it a bad name for you, I think "almost" everyone can agree that the economy was better in Maui with it, while it was going.
