Anchors for holding the ship while loading
It took five eight ton anchors to hold what is now a small tanker. The "valve pit" and the control house are on the right. The control house can still be seen from Highway One.
Ship to Shore Communications
There was a telephone line buoy for communication to shore, but this wasn't always available. Usually a whistle signal system was used.
On the right is "Wicks, the Diver," one of several divers used on this project. It's unknown if any of our local divers were used.
