, like many things does create a lot of jobs and economic stimulation. Let me illustrate just in the build stage. I delivered a couple of Cat. engines to SeaRay in Florida
. While I was there another truck was delivering 2 more Cat. engines as well. So you have the people who make the resins, fiberglass
cloth, tools and all the parts
that go to put the boat together. Then you have all the truck drivers who pick up everything at the manufacturers and take them to the ship builder
. After that you have the drivers of the semis and pilot cars who take the boats to the customer. All of this happens before the boat even touches water
for the first time.
By the way, that was one cool place.
