Here’s ‘Miss Katie,’ the new dredge due in ’22

By on March 16, 2021

 

(Dare County)

Is Dare County on the verge of solving one of its most stubborn and perhaps economically damaging problems — the battle against shoaling at the Oregon Inlet and elsewhere? A boat currently being built in Louisiana may hold the answer to that question.

The county has released this March 16 video highlighting the new shallow-draft hopper dredge that is under construction in Louisiana and slated to arrive on the Outer Banks next spring. The video debuted at the Dare County Board of Commissioners meeting that took place on Monday, March 15, 2021.

The “Miss Katie” is the result of a public-private partnership with the state of North Carolina. When it arrives in April 2022, it will be used to keep area channels and inlets open and accessible for commercial and recreational fishermen of the Outer Banks.
