In 1904 a wooden shed was built near the western harbor dam. It stood on stilts, with the front above the dam. For this, a chute had been installed so that the crew of the NZHRM (rescue company) could already get into their boat in the shed and then launch the boat via this chute to carry out the rescues at sea with a flying start. The (current) lifeboat "Arie Visser" is still in the basin. The barn is now no longer in the old place, but has been placed more to the east in the harbor near the buoys. Now it serves as the clubhouse of the diving team "Equador", which is evident from the large amount of surfaced cannons and other objects that adorn the nearby area.
