Powell River Giant Hulks breakwater

After you finish the 1.2km Willingdon Creek Trail in Powell River, continue walking towards the Pulp Mill — staying as close to the water as you can — and you’ll get some distant views of the largest floating Hulk breakwater in the world.

Very cool.

The breakwater is used to protect the Mill’s log storage pond.

While nine of these ten ships were built during the Second World War, the tenth ship, the S. S. Peralta, is the last remaining WWI concrete ship afloat.
