The Port Essington Hi-Lo inside scoop!

One of the highlights on our tour to Port Essington ( especially for the photographers) is the single boat lying in the grass. I was fortunate enough to make contact with one of the previous owners ( Sarah Brown) who provided me some history on the boat.

It is small crab boat called the Hi-Lo, that focused its efforts on the inner islands around the mouth of the Skeena River. It was originally from Oona River and later sold to someone who beached it as Port Essington. Sarah remembers fishing with her dad and sleeping on the engine box. ( very cool memories). Every year it seems to show its age a bit more.
