Building A Destroyer At The Bath Iron WorksBook - 1999
In Bath, Maine, the birthplace of American shipbuilding, the century-old Bath Iron Works shipyard has been building--largely by hand and with a good dose of tradition--some of the finest, deadliest ships in the U.S. Navy. Accompanied by mounting competition and a pressing need to modernize, the yard faces the year 2000 with changes great and small, most notably in the way it launches ships. No longer will the great gray leviathans roar down the "ways"--the traditional inclined ramp--into the Kennebec River; this ancient technology will give way to the modern dry dock.
