History

1905 Delivered to C.N.Co. The dredger was employed for the construction of the new Taikoo Dockyard. The two grabs were operated by a traction engine type of machinery, driven by steam from a single vertical boiler, which drove a crank connected to a flywheel. The Dutch captain, who delivered the vessel, remained with her.

Bill Schell in his 1905 "Register of Merchant Ships" has the vessel registered in the Phillipines.

1908. On completion of the dockyard the vessel was transferred to Taikoo Dockyard from C.N.Co.

1914. Reported as being registered under the U.S.A. flag in Manilla by the Phillipine government (Then USA territory)

1930. Removed from her builders list of names and yard numbers.
