Not so much for all the business owners on Stewart Ave. This idea has been kicked around before tho. Economically it makes sense but they would have to finish the 2nd berth at Duke. Also wouldn't they then still have to use Dep. Bay in the summer due to the tremendous amount of traffic on weekends etc.

Karl has given me permission to post some photos from his Facebook albums. - I've adjusted the contrast & colours a bit, and here are some of his photos relating to this thread: -------------------------------

- at low tide. It shows why the berth-1 jetty needs to be such a long structure.
Here are some photos of the damage that the Queen of Coquitlam caused to Departure Bay the other day: According to a crew member, the dolphin was literally knocked right into the water.
Here's the dolphin stand, minus the dolphin:
And here's our dolphin, laying out of commission along the berth 1 jetty.

We were wondering about this old wooden dolphin, and I've come to the conclusion that they'll be attaching this to the dolphin stand that the damaged dolphin is normally attached to. This is sort of a temporary fix. My reasonings are that the chains on the wooden dolphin look brand new, and one worker was welding a chain onto it, so they're obviously preparing it for something, and I think that something is to be a replacement.
Where might they have taken the wooden dolphin from? Do they have a used-dolphin-storage-center somewhere?
