This is the fuel depot only accessible by boat. It houses the barrels of kerosene, and other petroleum products. I think It was operated by the Lau family.

The business had a retail store and smaller warehouse on Tai Sun Street supplying islanders' need. Many larger fishing vessels also used diesel fueled motor in addition to the sail power too.
