    Shipbuilding is the construction of ships and other floating vessels. It normally takes place in a specialized facility known as a shipyard. Shipbuilders, also called shipwrights, follow a specialized occupation that traces its roots to before recorded history. Shipbuilding and ships repairs, both commercial and military, are referred to as "naval engineering". The construction of boats is a similar activity called boat building.

Urban Exploration : Exploring Decaying SS United States Ocean Liner Ship A few months ago, I was given the opportunity to check out the decaying SS Unites States Ocean liner. This ocean liner has been sitting in Philadelphia Pennsylvania since 1996. This ship is currently off limits to the public. It is located on a private shipyard shared with the US Govt. I had to undergo background checks to even step foot on the port. Exploring this one without permission is straight up impossible so DO NOT ATTEMPT! The SS United States is one of the last remaining Ocean Liners. SSUS was part of the United States Lines Fleet. The ships first maiden voyage was in 1952. The ship is about 990 feet long (5 City Blocks) and it is built by famous naval architect, William Gibbs. The SS United States was built different then other ocean liners during this time period. The ship was built with a mixture of steel and aluminum. Steel was used at the bow and on the lower decks as the entire upper desk was constructed of aluminum. The ship was also designed to be fireproof. No wood was used anywhere on the ship. Even the piano was designed with special fireproof wood. Mr. Gibbs designed the ship this way as the United States Govt wanted a ship that was safe and fast. Boy was she. The SS United States broke the speed record of 40-45MPH. It still holds the record today as the fastest Ocean Liner to ever cross the Atlantic Ocean. The US Govt second request was to have a ship built in the same quality as a naval ship. This was requested just incase World War III was to happen. The ship could've converted and transport 15,000 troops to Europe. The SS United States had areas for three classes, First Class, Cabin Class, and Tourist Class. Each class had access to certain areas of the ship. Many famous people traveled to and from the United States on this ship. However in the 60s, transportation across the Atlantic Ocean by plane was much faster. This in turn destroyed the ocean liners profit. Many ships like the Queen Mary, SS America, SS France, started to seize operations due to less interest. The SS United States last journey was in 1969. This massive ship never sailed on it own power again. It ended up being moved to Virginia under a new owner. All of the interior furniture was auctioned off. Some of the interior furniture including the ships horn can be found in museums. In the early 1990s, the ship was sent to Turkey to have its entire interior walls stripped to it bare bones due to asbestos. Then in 1996, the ship arrived to Philadelphia in hopes to be a riverfront Casino / Hotel. Those plans however fell through and the SS United States went through more owners. The ship was about to be scrapped until the SS United States Conservatory bought the ship. The owner of the group is the great granddaughter of William Gibbs, the creator of this ship. They been actively trying to find a owner to restore the ship. Many people are interested, just nothing has been finalized. They rely off donations to keep the ship docked which cost them 50,000 Us Dollars a month. Donations are keeping this ship afloat. If you would like to make a donation to help save the ship, go to https://www.savetheunitedstates.org/ to make a donation.

Shipbuilding is the construction of ships and other floating vessels. It normally takes place in a specialized facility known as a shipyard. Shipbuilders, also called shipwrights, follow a specialized occupation that traces its roots to before recorded history. Shipbuilding and ships repairs, both commercial and military, are referred to as "naval engineering". The construction of boats is a similar activity called boat building.

SHIPWAYS is a 1945 film presented by the Bethlehem Steel CompanyShipbuilding Division. The film opens with vintage footage of massive modern ships being built in the yards of Bethlehem Steel Company. (00:00:55:00) Then, we see the christening ceremony (00:01:50:00) of the USS Topeka. A nice shot of ships at Bethlehem yards is seen at (00:04:50:00. Various ship models from the distant past are seen at (00:05:22:00). A nice animated montage of Bethlehem ships launched from Quincy Yards is seen at (00:06:32:00). Famous ships from Sparrows Point Yard during World War I can be seen at (00:6:53:00). Finally, ships from San Francisco Yard are shown at (00:07:05:00). An animated map of Bethlehem’s yards across America can be witnessed at (00:07:27:00). The process of shipbuilding begins with detailed sketches (00:08:35:00). This is followed by hull designs going to the mold loft. (00:08:50:00) Soon, we have a large model to work with. (00:10:22:00) Now, let’s follow a ship through the assembly line starting with the fabricating shop. (00:10:29:00) Next, at the building yard we see workers placing the keel block and running the centerline. (00:11:40:00) After that, we see amazing visuals of the steel parts of the ship being put in place, bit by bit. (00:12:20:00). After much hard work, the ship has its launch ceremony, a major event. (00:15:18:00) Once launched, the ship is off to the outfitting pier, where all of America contributes to putting the finishing touches on the latest Victory ship. (00:17:12:00) Finally, she is off for her trial run at sea. (00:18:10:00) An animated map shows where ships can go to be serviced, (00:18:42:00) followed by various footage of repairs. (00:18:57:00) The ability to convert peace vessels to warships is integral to Bethlehem. (00:20:00:00) Once the Second World War hit, the largest ship building operation in American history took place. Thousands of workers were hired (00:23:15:00) trained, (00:23:35:00) and eventually building ships. (00:24:20:00) We then see the launch of a myriad of ships (00:24:50:00). An overview of how the attack on Pearl Harbor effected the ship building operation begins at (00:26:10:00). Brilliant footage of the Destroyer Escort can be seen at (00:27:10:00). An amazing shot of five ships being launched due to extreme need, can be seen at (00:28:40:00). A commissioning ceremony for the British Navy can be seen at (00:29:13:00). Soon, Bethlehem began building landing craft to give our troops an edge in battle. (00:30:25:00) The launch of the second USS Lexington can be seen at (00:32:15:00). A carrier of epic proportions, the USS Wasp, can be seen being launched at (00:33:15:00). The USS John Hancock can be seen being christened at (00:34:50:00). The film ends with the President of Bethlehem broadcasting a message of progress to all of its workers and all of America. (00:36:10:00) Many launches are shown at (00:37:45:00). Various impressive shots of shipyards appear at (00:07:40:00), (00:18:25:00), (00:20:50:00), (00:22:32:00), (00:25:10:00), (00:27:30:00) and (00:29:00:00). Additional footage of ships out at sea can be witnessed at (00:07:55:00), (00:30:00:00), (00:31:25:00), and (00:34:30:00).
