Hi just thought I would let anyone that’s interested in dredging for gold know that I am going to be refitting a commercial 6” gold dredge over the winter. I have already started a facebook page so I am not sure if it’s allowed to link to it but if not the admins can remove this.
The dredge is eventually destined to work over 230km above the Arctic circle but has a lot of modification to do. It was originally built to be shipped to Mali but that never happened and I am now the owner.
Regards,
John.

That ought to get-r-done for sure ! I I like the dredge tender seat and position , to bad you don't have a awning over it to give the tender some relief from the sun's heat. Good / stable work platform !! You ought to make some good profit's from this !:hello2: Keep us informed as you go and what you get this coming season ! GOOD LUCK !

Thanks.
The awning is one of the items planned 👍 the two motors are coming off to be replaced with a Mercedes diesel and a Keene P1500..
Cheers,
John.
