New Dredger

Not often you come across good news concerning British ships, shipbuilding these days. In the local media today it was announced that Moray Council N.E. Scotland's new small dredger Selkie was under going trials. It will work in the small harbours in their area and also be available for charter. It was built in a local boatyard at a cost of 2.4 million and it replaces the old Shearwater which was sold two years ago.

No grab. A bow mounted excavator will dredge to 27 feet. Changed days no wire ropes or chains to snag just burst hydraulic pipes.

Just for your memory Chadburn. The Annie W Lewis. She also was used to dredge the Ythan channel to Newburgh.

Three Triple Expansions possibly four of varying sizes depending if she had her Suction Ladder Cutter engine fitted I would think.
