    The new yard is only 30 min away from me. I might have to get out my spy camera. As of 4 weeks ago when I last drove by the yard, there were a few commercial ferry boats and one VERY large (un rigged) sailing yacht. There might be something inside though

    38 knots carrying 200 tons!! :eek: :eek: 42.5 knots light load, just awesome speed for something that big. Congrats to Derecktor Yards. :)

    Atlantic Coast shipbuilding may be the only heavy manufacturing industry left in this country. :(
