Little Ditcher is a small and dirty a-frame crane, and is therefore, one of the smaller floating cranes in the port. He is sometimes used for dredging up river at Mittsville or for oyster fishing in the estuary, as well as various other jobs. His size makes him unsuitable for rescue operations. He is good friends with the Star Tugs.
- In Salty's Lighthouse, Little Ditcher is depicted as a female character.
