Dan and Janet have begun some serious work toward the goal of clearing and landscaping lot 2 on Hudson Island (which currently is un-walkable due to scruffy brush and fallen logs). They found and bought this John Deer landscaping tractor, with a lot of attachments, and a load of cedar lumber to build a shed for it.
I know there will be a mess created, so we got some black dirt, to eventually spread around and plant with grass seed, to heal up the areas that get damaged or dug up.
Clearer view of the barge, and where it offloads to Hudson Island.
You can see the sign “Saltair Marine”, of 10801 Chemainus Rd, Ladysmith, BC V9G 2A4, phone 250-245-8027. (Useful to remember for next time I need a barge)
Aug 20, 2013 update. In Parksville, a fellow named Guy 250-927-2972 has a barge and a tugboat, put up for sale.
