    No that project had a ACOE permit and was done under the watchful eye of inspectors. We had a survey done of the area we were going to dredge and then we walked out on the mud flat to stake the work area. When we started we could walk off the property go completely around the dock and back up the other side without getting your feet wet when the lake was done. The channel we made was approximately 10 feet wide by 80 feet long 4 feet deep. Almost 120 cubic yards of material.

ID:	32719 We dredged this canal in 2003. Typically lasts 10 years. 10 ft wide 4 ft deep. The mud is so soft and fine, I'll call it ooze, that they just dig out the hard bottom and let it settle. With my Shamrocks, I'm able to keep the ooze clear for my path while it settles to the sides. No current in my little dead end canal. I can come and go but, no one else can. That little peninsular is where I shift into forward after backing the 20 out of the slip.
