Geocache of the Week
Geocaching can be a voyage to uncover forgotten history. “Fireboat” (GC1EJ4W) brings geocachers to an example of Hong Kong’s shipbuilding prowess in the 1950s—the fireboat Alexander Grantham.
Sir Alexander Grantham was a British administrator who governed Hong Kong and Fiji in the 40′s and 50′s.
AirQ placed the cache back in 2008. More than 30 geocachers have logged a smiley on the micro cache.
Geocacher Iain Morris even posted this video on the Geocaching.com Facebook page about his journey to find “Fireboat.” Watch Iain’s adventure in the video player below.
There are no spoilers in the video, but there are spoilers for frustrated geocachers on the cache page. This difficulty 1.5, terrain one cache is only available when the boat is open for public tours.
