    18k USACE Yaquina underway, date and location unknown. Yaquina helps to maintain the entrance bars, rivers and harbors on the coasts of Oregon, California and Washington. Because of her size, Yaquina is particularly well-suited for dredging the small, shallow coastal entrances and smaller, shifting sand deposits in river channels.
