Ever since man created harbors, he was faced with the problem of their maintenance. To this end, he created a rather primitive machine but in the end, fairly practical and already modern since it has existed for three centuries without really evolving. The harbor dredge was only removed from ship basins with the arrival of steam and chain dredges.

All along its lengthy existence, it maintained the kingdom's harbors so that the “Great Navy” could be maintained and resupplied in the best of conditions.

The present monograph is a salute to all te anonymous service vessels which, through their modest but necessary efforts, have discreetly participated in the history of the navy.

The work consists in a 72-page booklet which contains the description and the operation of the machine
