The Travels of Tug 44

Dredge Tauracavor

Dredge Tauracavor is owned and operated by Bean Dredging. She is a massive backhoe dredge. The white building on the left houses the controls and navigation equipment as well as a floating hotel for the workers. It also contains various workshops and repair equipment.

To the right is the "business end" of the dredge, with a giant backhoe.

Seen here, Tauracavor's bachoe plunges into the Kill Van Kull waterway for another load of muck from 45 feet below the surface.
