Sorry, I forgot what month it is - I meant August 9&10. And I ask if there is any disruption due to the exclusion zone around naval vessels. I have never had any fishing disrupted due to the passage of a naval vessel or a cruise ship. Both of these type of craft have an exclusion zone identical to that of an LNG tanker. If cruise ships and naval vessels do not disrupt Buoy 10 fishing today, it is doubtful that LNG tankers will in the future.
We have had up tp 5 cruise ships entering the lower river a week with no disruption to fishing. But, somehow the LNG tankers will "close the river down". The fishing on the lower river has not been disrupted by military vessels or cruise ships and it is doubtful that X number of LNG tankers would be disruptive. What defenses do cruise ships have?
I was just curious if anyone boating on the Columbia has had any of their fishing disrupted by a military vessel or a cruise ship - I never have and it appears that no one else has either. The WHAT IS situation we have today with vessels having a similar exclusion zone will be similar to WHAT WILL BE with the LNG tankers.
