Daly & Hannan’s new Dredge
Now Expected to be At Work on the Massena Canal October 1.

Daly & Hannan’s new dipper dredge, that was to be ready for work on the Massena canal June 1, was launched at the Ogdensburg ship yard last Thursday, and taken to the R.W. & O. dock, where some of the heavy machinery was put in place. The dredge is 121 feet long with 40 feet beam, and draws 12 feet and 2 inches of water at the working end. Every friction is operated by steam, there being 23 steam cylinders in all. It cost $75,000. The boiler is a scotch marine one, 11 x 11 feet. It is supplied with two hoisting engines with cylinders 16 x 18, compound gears and a pair of swinging engines 10 x 12 cylinders, also compound gear. The main deck contains the rooms for operating the machinery, dining room, kitchen, office and two private rooms.

The crew will have pleasant quarters on the upper deck. An electric light plant will be installed. It is now expected that the dredge will be at Massena at work on the canal by October 1.
