When the Lake Washington Ship Canal opened in 1917, it was a boon to maritime industry in Seattle. In this mini documentary, we visit several historic shipyards and boatyards that are still going strong on the Ship Canal.

This video is part of a series of short documentaries produced by Vaun Raymond for the centennial of the Hiram M. Chittenden (Ballard) Locks and Lake Washington Ship Canal.
