that is not a barge its whats left of a floating drydock . the wing walls have been removed.there is 5 other sections, i think they are up island in ladysmith and nanaimo.i worked on boats in this drydock a few times .it was big and i belive it originated from the navy in bremerton.and was purchased by point hope shipyard and esquimalt drydock company in 2000.it has now been scrapped as a functional drydock, as this section contained the control room for the pumps. cool pics by the way.

And just a heads up, if you find an old metal barge, think a few times over about going down inside. The metal rusts out eating the oxygen from inside, you go down, have no oxygen and can't make it back out...

Happened to a couple of people inspecting an old barge around here, in New West, both died...

A few firefighters almost died as well. Be carefull.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me, and it'll happen to you, too!
