Re: Tank heads on depressed center flat on EJE

Currently, submarines are built, in part, at Electric Boat, in Connecticut, and Newport News, in Virginia.  (Note that Newport News has a new name).  One part is built in each shipyard, and alternately, floated to the other for final assembly.

Tim O'Connor asked: 

"How about bulkheads for submarine construction? General Dynamics in New London CT.  Any other sub builders out there?"


Let's call New London by it's traditional name - Electric Boat.  Other builders before the Nuclear Navy: Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (Kittery, ME), Mare Island Naval Shipyard (Vallejo, CA), Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company (WWII - Manitowoc, WI).
