A Shipwright is a person who lofts, lays out, fabricates, erects, shores and outfits ships and boats. This includes new construction, repairs, and alterations of wood, fibreglass and metal boats, such as sailboats, motorboats, canoes, and cabin cruisers.
These are industrial jobs that require workers to be careful and pay attention to detail both for safety and for the quality of the product. They have to use marine architectural blueprints to loft or lay out new construction. These workers work in shipyards and boat building facilities. Most of the current industry is focused on building and restoring pleasure crafts and large luxury yachts. Workers in this group face temporary layoffs when business is slow. When there are large orders, they may have to work shifts.
