Sturgeon Bay residents and visitors can say good bye to big ships over the next week as Bay Shipbuilding’s Winter Fleet begins to wrap up another season. After five ships left their Sturgeon Bay winter home over the weekend, another four of the six remaining are scheduled to depart over the next nine days. Vice President Todd Thayse says they were able to stay on target and on schedule.
Thayse commended the hundreds of temporary workers Bay Shipbuilding brings on every year to take the heat off the company’s labor needs as they transition into more new boat building and conversion projects.
