Swellmaster joins the pier 6 operation
Swellmaster arrived today with a mud scow from Saint John and joined the crowd of equipment at pier 6. Work there is to include dredging and placing a gravel mat for nine new cribs to extend the pier area. Now at the pier are Channelmaster - reconfigured as a deck scow with two spuds, Cranemaster, mud scows HD-8 and HD-7 (which is now at pier 9-A) Atlantic Tamarack and Irving Chestnut, and the little scow Mighty Master. This is all the gear they need to start dredging, but it appears that there is a loading ramp is also under construction. This may be to bring in gravel for the mat.
