I wonder what the large vessel commercial tonnage produced in US shipyards is today.( Not counting Navy, CG or other Govt. contracts). Can't be too much. They do much commercial building down in Pascagoula or some of the other southern yards? Tonnage capacities? I mean, there is no US flag merchant marine to speak of, right?
