New $5 million Santa Cruz dredge christened ‘Twin Lakes’ in ceremony

Published Wednesday July 20

SANTA CRUZ >> Brian Foss was among the first eager members of the public to take over the pilot’s chair for the brand new $5 mill. dredge on Wed morning.

More than 3 decades have passed since the retired former Santa Cruz Small Craft Harbor director Saturday negotiating with then-Congressman Leonard Panetta to purchase the port district’s first, and now retired, dredge — the Seabright.

Where levers were once the norm, the completely new dredge’s pilot room featured switches, a computer screen spitting out obvious statistics on the vessel’s velocity, engine load, volume pressure and vacuum below a broad open view of the harbor.
