Barge

All supplies and equipment are brought to the Mission by the ‘barge’ every fortnight. The ‘landing’ is a boat ramp on the beach which has enough depth for one hour each side of high tide. Tide rises and falls over six meters here. A tractor carries supplies to trucks waiting at the top of the ramp which then drive the 20 km back to the Mission for unloading by forklift and stowing into cool rooms by chain gang.
