I have noticed that the Trailing Suction Dredger Cornelia has been take in tow bound for Dordrecht. Her name painted out and it looks as though her funnel also.

Using Google Translate the Dutch translates as "On the last trip on the busy 09/22/2011 new". whatever that means! Also, another bit of Googling reveals: http://www.dredgepoint.org/dredging-...pment/cornelia

Dutch owned, and going home by the sound of it. The AIS now available in SN shows her currently just about to enter the port of Terneuzen in Holland. If you click on "Marine Traffic" on the top of the home page, then in the left panel that has the title "Go to vessel" the site will show you where she is at this moment.

I was saddened to read that the Cornelia had been scrapped in 2011. I was on board for her trials and first contracts in Rotterdam and Wilhelmshaven in 1981 whilst working for Baggermaatschappij Breejenbout. Whilst dredging in shallow water behind the oil jetties at Wilhelmshaven, she managed to lose both her dragheads within 15 minutes! As I recall this was due to her "sitting" on them on a falling tide. There were problems with excessive vibration when new, I think this was solved by installing modified propellers.
