HACI - Jenny
The HACI would like to thank Bill Dougan and ISF for their volunteer work in raising the sunken sailboat at the Gorge Harbour Government dock. These community members came together to rescue the vessel before it became an environmental disaster, spending significant time and energy ensuring the salvage operation went smoothly and didn’t further damage the beautiful wooden boat.
Unfortunately, other individuals, without seeking permission from the boat owner or HACI, removed hardware and items from the vessel after it had been brought to the surface. This constitutes theft and vandalism, and has been reported to the RCMP who are investigating. If you are in possession of items taken from the vessel, please contact the Harbour Authority at 250-935-0263 to make arrangements to return them.
