"I have a great job as a shipbuilder! I have had the opportunity to work on Great Lakes freighters one thousand feet long, tugboats, destroyers, submarines, and yachts. No matter how large or small, there is a certain mystique and romanticism associated with shipbuilding and ship repair. The most thrilling sight by far is to watch a ship launched and to see pride on the faces of all the men and women who worked together as a team to make that ship come to life and sail away."
