Savannah: Class of '80

In the East, our yard gets pretty good grades.

Not because of our cranes, dock, specialized shops, good prices, or our perfect working climate.

But because we have the best bunch of workers in the business. Men like Arthur Allen.

Arthur just finished a long apprenticeship in our Inside

Machine Shop. He's now a Journeyman Machinist - a first class mechanic. Which means he's as good as they come.

It isn't easy to make the grade at Savannah. If a man doesn't cut it he doesn't graduate.

Our work-voyage repairs, major conversions, and scheduled drydocking-is done by skilled people like Arthur. Competent, hard-working, gung-ho men and women. Many of whom have been here their whole working lives.

We're proud of them.

We want to thank them all.

Publicly. For making us the first-class yard in the South.

The Savannah Yard.
