Construction & Repair Activity Up At Small And Medium Size Yards

MARITIME REPORTER recently conducted a limited survey among key small and medium-size U.S.

shipyards engaged primarily in the construction of shallow-draft vessels.

Information received as of press time is presented here to show current levels and indicates activity is on the upswing.

Tank, hopper and deck barges, towboats, tugs, oil spill recovery vessels, gambling boats, dinner/excursion boats, offshore supply vessels and crewboats account for most of the construction activity in the commercial sector.

Patrol boats for the U.S. Navy, Army and Coast Guard and several foreign navies, as well as number of special projects for the Corps of Engineers, account for a substantial portion of the government vessel construction projects.
