I heard of a go devil being used to dredge out a slip up to 8' deep. All they do is send it downstream!

Anyone know of a dredge/trash pump for sale. Maybe I could use it then flip it. Or one for rent/lease. I have talked to the appropriate locals about permits. Not too tough in Kentucky. It will be nice
to not have the weeds and muck.

Most of the local rental centers here in Fl have them for rent, sorry I know that won't help you up there in Ky. Have you checked the local rental co's?

I have seen this work in an area that sand from a sandy creek over the years closed up an inlet and people could not get through unless on a hi tide..worked great moved about 4' 50' wide...

I just had the FL DEP out the other day to see if I could extend the dock out since it is shallow in the front and am having problems with the lift hitting the sand at low tide (dock is on Estero Bay, Florida's first aquatic preserve). Of course the answer was no, go figure. She did suggest applying for a maintenance dredging permit. When I asked if anyone had successfully gotten one in the area for a private dock she said she didn't think so. So I am thinking some outboard might pull in one day and "get stuck" and have to spin it's prop for awhile to get out.

Used to run a d6 at a landfill and cashman the g.c. of the big dig in boston bought the dump just for dredge disposal. Stinky stuff

Yeah, we live on a USFWS Manatee refuge, so I just do these things, AFTER I have talked with my neighbors and everybody is cool with it.... I just push the dredged bottom up against our seawalls/under our dock's deck, can't push your dirt under the neighbor's dock, that would invite trouble....

We have to dredge our private boathouse all the time. Last time it cost around $1500 to dredge and another $2500 to move the sand. This was a small 8 stall boathouse. They usually use a trackhoe, then haul it off with dumptrucks......the sand can probably be resold. You could probably get someone ....maybe even the city water department to haul it off for free.

I talked to a guy that sets up two bubblers for ice to a frame and runs them under water on a timer at night. In the morning all of the cloudy water is gone. He said it worked great.
