The Humewood Slipway

The Humewood Slipway must surely be as well known a beachfront landmark as Shark Rock Pier is.  The difference being that most people probably don't know what it actually is.  The iron and cement structures just of Humewood Beach used to be the city's dry dock used for boat repairs and service before the harbor was built in the 1930's.  These days is doesn't serve any shipping purpose anymore but has become a man made reef attracting fish which in turns makes it a popular spot for scuba divers, spear fishermen and snorkelers.
