Steve Revely Age 45 I worked as a shipwright at Smith Dock South Bank Middlesbrough 1975-1986 and loved my job.
I worked on the QE2 refit after the falklands war and then worked on the trident build programme in Barrow.
Its such a shame we dont have the scale of work like we used to,young men would love the environment to work in.
Ian Campbell I was 16yrs old serving an apprenticeship as a shipwright,Scotts Greenock 1971.We had a korean man from Hyundai, who,s job was to follow us all over and take notes.So we helped them put us out of business.I survived 20yrs, before calling it quits.I wish I had my hearing back.
R S Jackson Why have we lost all are good skilled men and women. We were the best, not greedy like now - just used to turn out qualty work all the time in every trade but now nobody cares as long as there is money in it.
