Building ships in Maine for war and more

Shipbuilding is very much a part of Maine history.

And Maine’s present and future.

Here’s a link to a nice Associated Press story about Bath Iron Works and a class of ship it has been building for the Navy the past two decades. It is quite incredible.

The story even quotes a welder who has worked on nearly nothing else since he started at BIW years ago, long enough to raise children and become a grandfather.

BIW is highly respected around the country and the world for what it does.
