This shows the suction arm of the Kawatiri lowered to cover the suction inlet. Next sequence lowers the arm pivoting on the Trunnion slide. On a shallow bar with only 2 metres under the keel it does not get lowered very much further !!! Once in a while she does sit on the draghead ... not very often as the Master and crew are pretty adept I can tell you.
