It seems like the NSP has been around for years yet there are no ships started. Lots of rebuilding being done on the yard facilities though!

From the article:

"Last week, the coast guard revealed that its new icebreaker will cost $1.3 billion to build — nearly double the $720 million originally estimated when the project was first announced in 2007."

Wow. That is one expensive vessel.

Looks like they've been driving deep piles in the north end of the shipyard. For the condos JD mentioned, maybe?
