In 1904, a wooden shed was built near the western harbor dam. This stood on stilts, with the front above the dam. For this purpose, a chute had been installed so that the crew of the N.Z.H.RM (rescue company) could get into their boat in the shed and then launch the boat via this chute to make a flying start to the rescues at sea. The (current) lifeboat "Arie Visser" is still moored in the basin. The shed is no longer on the old site but has been placed more easterly in the harbor near the buoyage. Now it serves as the clubhouse of the diving team "Ecuador", which is clearly visible from the large number of surfaced cannons and other objects that decorate the nearby area.
