Anyway, none of that is altogether that relevant, other than to explain why I was so thrilled when my friend found out about this place. As I said, I have always been interested in all manner of ships, and my dad and I would often drive around to old boatyards or check out the dry docks that remained in the harbor. In all that time, though, I never got to go DOWN IN to a drydock or climb one of the massive cranes.
That was about to change.
I headed down here at my first opportunity.
