RUKAMAVATI

Ship No 35.

Was the first of a long line of Grab Dredgers that were to be built at Henry Robb. Ordered by Maharao of Kutch she was a Single screw Grab Dredger at 412 gross tons.
She had a length overall of 139 feet 6inches with a beam of 29 feet 6 inches with a height of 12 ft 9 in above her keel.

I don’t have any photo’s as yet as she was launched such a long time ago, it must have been around the early 1920’s so if anyone out there has a pic’s or any further info then please feel free to get in touch.
