THE YARD: BUILDING A DESTROYER AT THE BATH IRON WORKS., Sanders, Michael S.
2 Sanders, Michael S. THE YARD: BUILDING A DESTROYER AT THE BATH IRON WORKS.
HarperCollins, New York, 1999, first edition. 
253 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0060192461 Pictorial endpapers. "In Bath, Maine, the birthplace of American shipbuilding, the century-old Bath Iron Works shipyard has been building - largely by hand and with a good d ose of tradition - some of the finest, deadliest ships in the U.S. Navy. Accompanied by mounting competition and a pressing need to modernize, the yard faces the year 2000 with changes great and small, most notably in the way it launches sh i p s . N o longer will the great gray leviathans roar down the 'ways' - the traditional inclined ramp - into the Kennebec River; this ancient technology will give way to the modern dry dock. 'The Yard' captures this moment, the end of an era in Ne w En gl a nd h istory, through the eyes of the workers as they build and launch the 'USS Donald Cook', one of the last ships to be launched the old way. Here the readers step into the daily lives of the shipyard's mechanics - the welders and p ipe fi tte rs an d ri gge rs and shipfitters - as the ship develops. They watch this complex evolution from the first cutting of steel through the dramatic launch and rigorous trials at sea to the destroyer's triumphant commissioning, sharing the mome nt when th e s hi p's firs t Navy crew brings her to life. This is a world rich in danger, humor, and shipyard and navy lore, one filled with uncertainty and hope, and not a little fear of change, as this venerable company fights mightily aga inst ste ep od ds t o fi nd a ne w pla ce in a different world. Illustrated throughout with dramatic photographs and detailed drawings, (it) is not only a fascinating inside look at one of the greatest shipyards in the United States, but also a ver y hum an c hronic le of the liv es of those who work there."
