Sunset Beach Barge

A highly rated Vancouver vacation destination!

Tomorrow might be its last day:

While it could be possible to push it off using airbags and heavy equipment, the plan it to wait for a so-called king tide to refloat it and try again with the tugs.

It’s believed a tide that is just five to 10 centimetres higher than 4.5 metres would allow the barge to easily slip back into the water. And federal officials are forecasting an exceptionally high tide of five metres on Dec. 6.

A company representative from Richmond-based Sentry Marine Towing Ltd., which is involved, said that seems to be the best chance to pull the barge off. He declined to give his name, saying several government agencies are working on the operation. (Vancouver Sun)

The “king tide” arrives tomorrow morning at around 8. I will be there with bells on!

Update! – 10 Dec ’21
