With only a couple more ships hanging around its docks for the bitter end of its Winter Fleet season, Bay Shipbuilding in Sturgeon Bay is preparing for another busy year of builds and conversions. Projects on the horizon for the shipyard include a new tug and barge slated to be finished this fall and the conversion of the Cleveland Rocks to a self-unloading cement barge. Bay Shipbuilding Vice President Todd Thayse says they are prepared to make their annual transition.
Two ships are due to leave Sturgeon Bay this month as a part of Bay Shipbuilding’s Winter Fleet including The Bright Star on April 12 and the Evening Star on April 19.
