Here's one for the engineeers out there!

has anyone come with a design for a home-made dredger yet.

Something to dredge out the mooring, say at present at a depth of 2 - 3 ft (depending on the tide) down to say 3 - 4 ft.

I have tried it with a old-fashioned baler attached to the end of a long pole, but not brilliantly successful!

about 1/2 pound of C4 should do the trick

I use an old pressure cooker bolted to the end of a quant for dredging my boat dock. It's slow but it works. You need to let the spoil dry out and settle before using it to build up the garden as it shrinks a lot as it dries.

May go and see Buttifants this weekend when I am up, but it will probably be quite expensive.  It was going to be done when I had the quay heading done last year and it was £150.00 then, but they didn't get round to it!.

Nigel,  doesn't the pressure cooker make it rather heavy to pull out when it is full?
