It's just north-east of Confederation Park. It's currently abandoned and just sitting in the waters. Read there were plans to move it and redevelop it into a restaurant though.

Here's a photo album page of the inside of the McBarge. It's been languishing there for 20+ years.

no place to put it, no real reason to keep it
nobody wanted to buy it.

I read in the paper though that some developer is looking to buy it + relocated to Maple Ridge or port Moody (one of the two) as a high tier restaurant or some crap.

There was talk of using it as part of a waterfront condo project, I think in Mission.
I believe that was turned down by City hall or something like that.
