Shipbuilding Today

Shipbuilding has gone through some major changes over the past 200 years.  From wood to fiberglass, oars to state of the art diesel engines, shipbuilding has found its way into the 21st century.  With a changing fishery it was inevitable many of the shipbuilders would have to evolve to keep up with the demand of the today’s fisherman.

Gone are the days when men would spend their winters hauling timber to build their vessels.  Today’s shipbuilders use the most modern of tools and material, getting them shipped from all over the world to compete in the shipbuilding industry and to create the most up to date vessels as possible.

In this section you will find written documents, photos, video and audio which will allow you to see first hand the changes in the shipbuilding industry over the years, as well as the different methods of shipbuilding used around the province of Newfoundland.
