Floating Bunkhouses, McClean Arm

Old ships were often used as floating bunkhouses at remote logging camps or to house cannery workers. Some ship hulls can still be found as docks and breakwaters throughout Alaska and British Columbia. More often they were abandoned such as this one exposed at low tide. Converted ships are still available to serve as floating camps. Read more here and here. Click here to download the CoastView app and explore McClean Arm Bay.
