In today’s episode of The REAL gCaptain podcast Captain John Konrad reflects on a topic that frustrates, saddens and sometimes angers him… the state of American Shipyards today. The fact is that building ships in America is significantly more expensive and prone to delay (which is VERY expensive from an economists point of view).

The question is why? And John’s answer to this important question is probably not the answer you are expecting but it is the one shipyard managers need to hear.
