From buffer to buffer the new ' racer ' ia 34 feet in length, its tank alone being 19 feot long.

Green Point Dock. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 21 January 1898

Green Point Dock. The mistatoniunts which appeared in last Saturday's Examiner in roforonco to tho proposed dock at Green Point have given rise to considerable comment in Maoleau. It is certainly remarkable that it should have been insinuated that the work was not a commendable one, and that half tho electors wore not favorable to it. These statements could only have come from a source in which facts were entirely disregarded. Regarding tho utility of tho work, there are low works undertaken by tho Government which are as justifiable from a financial point of view as the proposed doclc. The losses that result from tho absence of proper facilities for docking and repairing the Government craft on tho river probably amount to as much every year as tho capital cost of tho dock. About 12 years ago the dredge Archimedes was lying at the Heads for two months waiting for favorable weather to enablo her to proceed to Sydney for an overhaul. The ©larenco was taken down twice, and on one occa...
