It's great they are making progress and getting things in place for when the exemption comes through, but just looking at Kimmswick on Google Earth, it looks like a l o n g walk from their unimproved riverfront up to town passing right by the sewage treatment plant and ducking under a railroad track. It may be a cute, historic, artistic small town, but I'm not sure I would want to base my overnight passenger boat headquarters there. A headquarters, to me, requires some specialized people such as reservation clerks, compliance officers (even small towing companies now have a person in charge of complying with all the govt. regulations), marine and hotel supply purchasing personnel, port engineers, port captains, etc, etc. It might be hard and/or expensive to get that kind of talent to live in or commute to Kimmswick.
But what do I know?
