Operated from 1917 to 1967, dredging rock from the Yuba River and separating the gold. There were up to a dozen of these monsters operating at one time. This is the last one still in the area. Still floating, too! Unfortunately it's on private property so this is the best view most people will get.

I saw that article about the sinking, but I think that was a different dredge. It sounded like that one was still in operation, while this one has been idle since 1967.

You're right. It was No. 21 that sunk, not No. 17.

The mapped ship has now disappeared so it must have been number 21.

I think number 17 is now a little bit to the west
