Item Description



Ellicott 670 – Barnstable County Dredge Cod Fish I


Originally purchased in 1996, the Ellicott 670 was the only dredge used by the County for the dredging of sand in the coastal marine environment on Cape Cod since it was placed into service. For last season (2020 – 2021), the Cod Fish I was only used as a Booster Station for 3 projects and saw minimal work over the past 5 years as the County has purchased two new Ellicott dredges hence the reason for its sale.


The engine was removed and rebuilt by Brooders in R.I. 5 years ago. There are 5,989 hours on the rebuild. Total hours on the dredge are unknown.


The engine is a Cat 3412 Twin Disc PTO.


The pump & gear box is from Ellicott.


Some modifications made to facilitate its use as a Booster Station:


The digging ladder was removed.  Piston and plumbing for the ladder hoist are still in place and operational. The Cutter Head hydraulics have a loop under the lever room so the dredge can be run. The hydraulic lines and case drain for the cutterhead motor have been removed and disposed of. The pins to install the ladder were cut out and new ones need to be manufactured to put the ladder on. The holes for the pins were not cut and are in good shape.


All hydraulics minus the cutterhead circuit were operating properly when the dredge was being used as a booster. The dredge hydraulic system is filled with biodegradable oil.


Known Problems Needing Attention:


PTO that drives the dredge pump needs to be rebuilt (clutches are gone).


There are small holes in the hull need to be patched (aft on the transom) as well as in the top deck (behind the lever room).


The bulkhead between the pump room and underneath the lever room is rusted and should be replaced.


The spud gates are loose and need to be shimmed.


The flap valve on deck needs to be replaced.


The service water system needs to be rebuilt.


The 14’ pipe from the flap valve to the discharge needs to be replaced.


Other Items/Notes:


The dredge is on its third suction tube in the ladder. The last one was replaced 6 years ago. Over the last 2 years, the ladder has not been on the dredge because it was used as a Booster Station.


The Cog Belt that drives the pump has been removed and disposed of.


The Pump, Impeller, Front Door and the Rear door were replaced 7 years ago.


The Suction Pipe underneath the Lever Room was replaced 3 years ago and has minimal hours.


The Hydraulic Expansion tank was replaced less than 6 years ago.


The Spud Ram Brackets were rebuilt 3 years ago.


The Lever Room was replaced approximately 5 years ago with a wider one built by Ellicott.


The Starboard Swing Winch was replaced with a new one 3 years ago (Pull Master winches).


The Engine and Pump room were replaced 5 years ago.


The Ladder Piston and the one spud lift piston was replaced less than 8 years ago.


The engine was removed and rebuilt by Brooders in R.I. 5 years ago. There are 5,989 hours on the rebuild. Total hours on the dredge are unknown.


All of the Hatch Covers were replaced with galvanized covers.


The Cast Elbow that comes from the pump was replaced 4 years ago.


The 14” steel piping from the Elbow to the Flapper was replaced 3 years ago.


The hull of the dredge has been protected by tires its entire life and they are fastened to the dredge deck with welded rings and hangers. 


All of the railings are intact.


Pick up and removal:


Depending on where it needs to go, the dredge can be towed to a location or it can be hauled out of the water at a shipyard (the closest one is in New Bedford, MA) where it would have to be separated. The hull is comprised of three sections. It can then be placed on a trailer and towed over land to its final destination. Please be sure to use the Q/A to ask specific questions regarding removal, based on your location, etc.


Dredge must be removed by 30 days after date of sale.


Dredge sold 'as is'


Cost of moving transporting the dredge is the buyers responsibility.
