The comment by Barbara is 100% accurate. It reminds me of the time a 70 year old lady had to go to the washroom on Pilley's Island side. Apparently there is no facility so she had to walk to the top of the hill and do her job on the side of the road like an animal. She said on her return, "I firked it over with snow like a dog would do." The government should be ashamed and treat all of our citizens with RESPECT. The ferry has been running across the tickle long enough to have some kind of facility installed.

I SEE THEY ARE FORCED TO PUT SEWAGE TREATMENT ON THE FERRIES BUT WHEN IT COMES TO PEOPLE WAITING FOR THOSE FERRIES AT THE DOCK,THEY ARE FORCED TO GO TO THE WOODS,OR CARRY A PORTABLE TIOLET IN THEIR VECHILE.WHEN YOU THINK OFF THE POOR COUNTRIES AND THE SEWAGE PROBLEMS THEY HAVE,THE GOVERNMENT DEALING WITH THE FERRY DOCKS ARE NO BETTER.IM SURE THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE.I FEEL BAD FOR THE OLDER FOLKS.

Looks like chances for a ferry to give some kind of reliable service to Long Island just went down the toilet. We have been getting a sporadic service from the LBI ferry Hazel McIsaac since last September. Trouble is, after dishing out close to $40 Million, The Hazel just a pretty boat to look at and looks wonderful tied up at the dock across the bay from us at Shoal Arm. When it comes time for her to come across the Bay to Long Island she can't run in wind, she can't run when it's snowing and she can't land when there's any tide. Government sure missed the 'boat' on this one, that is if it had any hopes of providing a ferry service to Long Island.
