An in-depth look at the Richmond shipyards (located in the city of Richmond, California) and the role they played during World War Two. The film not only looks at the ship building process, but also the massive workforce and the logistics of meeting their day to day needs for housing, food and transport. The four Richmond Shipyards were run by Permanente Metals and part of the Kaiser Shipyards, and were responsible for constructing more ships during World War II than any other shipyard in the country. . .

684ft x 105 ft San Antonio Class amphibious warship was translated via the shipyard's rail car system to the floating dry dock prior to launch. The dock was moved away from the pier and then flooded to float the ship. Story at http://bit.ly/1KSeUTs
Shipyards and dockyards are places where ships are repaired and built. These can be yachts, military vessels, cruise liners or other cargo or passenger ships. Dockyards are sometimes more associated with maintenance and basing activities than shipyards, which are sometimes associated more with initial construction. The terms are routinely used interchangeably, in part because the evolution of dockyards and shipyards has often caused them to change or merge roles.

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.
