Good bye to the Barge

On 25th November Port Harvey suffered a major setback when our barge suffered a catastrophic damage causing it to sink. We are in the process of cleaning up the mess and trying to salvage whatever we can. Given the age of the barge (73 years) it was not able to be insured which while being a setback will not stop Gail and I from continuing on and making sure we have the Red Shoe functioning in the 2016 season. At the moment we are concentrating on the issues at hand and then will sit down and make a plan for the future which we will share with all our friends here. Gail and I feel that we have our health so this is only a set back that can be dealt with.

Our thanks to Len from Burial Cove for notifying us as we were in Alberta at the time and for his quick thinking which helped save some of the items in the Red Shoe. George is there now with Tom to help.  We are going to salvage what we can and carry on. We will update here and on our Facebook Page with our progress.

George and Gail, Sure sorry to see this and to hear not insured. It was really great to get to meet you and share some time on your dock. Looking forward to seeing you in Seattle in January, and on the dock at Port Harvey in 2016. Wishing you all the best as you go forward. Harvey, SleepyC, C-Dory 22 Cruiser
