The shipyard bustles with activity as dozens collaborate to build and repair boats and ships throughout, from personal schooners to trading galleons. Inside one bay, five carpenters work in unison to assemble carefully shaped ribs along a new ship’s keel, the skeleton of a hull gradually become visible through their labors. From outside, the sound of teams of sawyers use meticulously filed two-man saws to cut enormous timbers into planks, ribs, and spars. Within one of the yard’s drydocks, a bay is gradually flooded to allow a newly-completed vessel to float out to sea, ready for delivery to its proud new owners.
