Who is more important… the people who build a workboat or the people who run
one? The answer is that both are important. Just as the 1600 ton master, deckhand

Shipyards offer shoreside opportunities in a number of different disciplines and skill
levels, including naval architects, marine engineers and designers if there is an
in-house design team. They use welders, shipfitters, pipe fitters, carpenters,
electricians, sheet metal workers, sandblasters and painters to put things together.
And they use schedulers, planners, estimators, purchasing and procurement,
budget and accounting people to make sure that the end product is delivered to the
client on time and within budget.

Henry Kaiser's shipyards in World War II. Here, a team of riggers and machinists prepares the
stern tube for acceptable tolerances with the shaft by reaming the inner journals. Although
the basic concepts are similar today, the use of sub-assemblies, modules, laser alignment
and computers has changed things like night and day.
