Interesting watch, thx for posting.

Can't help but compare it to the Liberty Ship industry over here, though I suppose to be fari, we built a lot of wooden craft during WW2 also.

Yes, you're correct, we did build a lot of wood boats.
CC built a huge bundle of boats. Not to mention all PT type boats were wood, and many landing craft.

Good piece on Elco PT Boats.
Huckins built them too.

Good footage of the boats running plus all you ever wanted to know about laminating mahogany. :P
Grab your slide rule and enjoy
