The Portland-to-Yarmouth ferry is gone, too --- I think it was 
discontinued before The Cat was introduced. 
I agree with all of you on the Board.  I can't believe available 
riders aren't out there.  Someone, somewhere, could still do a big 
business with this. 

There hasn't been train service to the Maritimes in about fifteen 
years, either, since The Atlantic Limited across Maine was discontinued 
(after 103 years).
