Blanket Bay Hotel: You've never seen anything like it!

Blanket Bay is a tiny bay on a tiny island in Doubtful Sound.
In fact this is a drop off point for seagoing fishermen who bring in their catch, leave it in the refrigerated container and then return to the sea.
March 2003 - I heard they had installed a 'new' container to improve the "hotel", LOL. Maybe to increase the refrigerated storage for fish more likely.

Style, design features are remarkable!!
Comfort questionable, character undeniable.
