McBarge!


The absurd awesomeness of this is not to be underestimated. Remember the McBarge from EXPO '86? Before it wound up at its current resting place off the shore of Burnaby, there was a short-lived plan afoot in the early 1990's to moor it in Port Moody and turn it into a swank restaurant.

In a clean up of old records here at Port Moody city hall, a complete set of blue-prints for the McBarge turned up, bound for recycling. Just for the sake of kitsch, I'm going to try selling the floor plans and elevations on eBay.

I just may make enough money off this for a Big Mac meal!

The site schematic, elevations, and some of the floor plans are kind of attractive and I could see someone wanting them to frame as a weird sort of souvenir.
