Bay Shipbuilding Rebuilds Its Winter Fleet
Wednesday, March 07, 2007
The workload for many businesses, often slows down during the frigid winter months.
That's not the case at Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay. According to a report by WBAY, at Bay Shipbuilding, winters are the busiest time of year, and it's actually becoming a tourist attraction.
The Wolverine was slowly on the move to dry dock Tuesday. It's one of 18 lake freighters making up what Bay Shipbuilding calls its winter fleet. Some of the ships are real old timers. Eight hundred employees make up crews on the clock 24 hours a day, seven days a week. About 75 percent of Bay Shipbuilding's winter fleet are ships that it built.
