By 1940 this navy yard supported a powerful fleet of modern steel ships. Where once carpenters, joiners, and sail- makers responded to the morning shipyard bell, now a shrill steam whistle summoned welders, boilermakers, and electronics specialists to their work stations. Engines, railways, and cranes filled the navy yard.During World War II, the navy yard built 320 vessels, docked 2,000 , outfitted 11,000 and overhauled or repaired 3,000.
