Needy club in need of a dredger

Anybody got one to donate? Haha...
We require continuous dredging due to silting and our dredge is beyond repair. A new one would cost 125000$ and being only about 15 members we cannot afford it. So if there is someone here with plenty of money but lacking a dock space we could sell one for the modest sum of 125k!

It might help if you said where in the world you needed this dredger, but then again, probably not.

Somewhere I have a picture of the guys at Annapolis Sailing School during a winter low tide with waders and shovels ...

We are located in Chandler, Quebec, in the Baie des Chaleurs. We have fuel, water, electricity, laundry, showers. The location is a very good base to explore the canadian maritimes. There is an affordable yard for haul out and winter storage nearby. Paying a dredging company would not make much sense as we need dredging every year, so we need our own dredger. We had a study done which said that extending the breakwater would solve our silting problem but that is more expensive and will be our long term solution when eventually we hope to secure funding from some government agency. We are operating this season with reduced space due to lack of dredging, but next year season is in danger if we cannot get a dredger. I understand it is highly unlikely someone would be willing to fork 125000$ to buy a dock space. How about fundraising in the whole american sailing community? We could make one dock space available free of charge for any boat flying the american flag!
