** To a sub-25 foot pontoon boat suction dredge, 2 foot waves can be a problem. A 5 foot wave can swamp your dredge boat but a 10 foot wave might capsize and / or sink it.
** To the 100 foot bucket dredges, it takes rougher seas to convince the captain to pull the plug and make the 5 mile run back to port.

Each summer the crews of a batch of floating dedges put to sea from Nome, Alaska to mine gold from the floor of the Bering Sea. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bering_Sea_Gold:_Under_The_Ice The winter mining season]] results in the crews using lightweight suction dredges positioned over holes cut in the sea ice.

Added DiffLines:

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Some of the crews have closed out their seasons with barely enough gold to cover the palms of their hands. Some have ended their seasons deeper in debt than when they started.

Added DiffLines:

* [[TheAllegedCar The Alleged Boat]]: These machines are custom-built by way of being cobbled together from whatever bits and pieces the operators can find. Remember, there are no roads overland connecting Nome with the rest of the world. Everything must come in by plane or barge.
