1. Steam, glorious steam. DPW No.130 at work off Rimouski, QC July 20, 1978.
If a dredge can ever be termed remarkable, then the D-6 is it. It arrived this morning in tow of the veteran tug Swellmaster, along with the scow HD-9 (with the workboat Irving Chestnut cradled inside) and the tug Atlantic Tamarack. The small flotilla came all the way from Montreal where owners Harbour Development Ltd ( see http://www.harbourdev.com/ ) had been working off and on in the St.Lawrence Seaway. The whole works tied up at pier 7 along with other units of the Harbour Development fleet.
4. D-6 arrives in Halifax for the first time November 23, 1996, with Swellmaster alongside, lining up for Dartmouth Cove.
Despite being 99 years old, she is still in tip top condition. She was excellently cared for by the DPW and was thoroughly modernized. One interesting hold over is the radial arm davits she carries for a lifeboat. This are rare as hen's teeth these days.
