There are many arguments for and against new petrochemical plants, and LNG terminals certainly are included, but disrupting boating traffic's a non-starter.

You may remember (and you may not) that every waterway in America was subject to complete and random closure during the aftermath of 9/11, as naval assets passed through, back and through again, yet somehow yachting survived.
There will be lots of saber rattling about LNG terminals, but moving LNG ships at night, or on any regular schedule will render boating problems very largely moot. If you don't want the terminals in your town, that's fine, but crying "It messes up my club's racing schedule" isn't going to find very many non-yachting allies, IMO.
