    • Buses at 20-30 years
    • Boats at ? (WSF has this info)
  • Propulsion systems are all environmentally obsolete now
fuel issues
Fuel Issues
  • WSF has a very thirsty fleet (100s of gallons an hour for most vessels)
  • The rapid rise in fuel prices has already wrecked the agency’s budget
  • More troubles to come: Supply vs. Demand issues over the next 30 years are scary (See StewartMiller.com)
