There was only one source cited throughout this entire article. It could have used much more information on many topics (such as MSX and Dermo). Paragraphs were choppy and made it slightly confusing to read. Little information of substance was given, and some claims were backtracked. It mentioned a disagreement between the state and watermen over dredging but never mentioned the stance of either side.
