Portland District dredger Essayons traveled north recently to lend a hand in the Alaska district.
During this time, the ship and her crew removed nearly 300 thousand truck loads of sand from the Cook Inlet navigation channel.
The Essayons is one of only two Corps-owned dredgers on the West Coast. The ship was built in 1983 and designed to dredge anywhere in the world.
