I have been working as a ship builder on the east coast for as long as I can remember. I have been near the ocean my entire life and I always loved watching the giant ships come sailing in. I love them so much I realized that I wanted to build them at an early age. The General Steel we use for the construction is some of the strongest material I have ever seen. IT is so thick and tough I am not sure anything can do damage to it. I feel confident in saying that the ships we build will not be in any danger of sinking. I love watching the ships sail out after spent so much time building them.
I do not know if I want to be a ship builder my whole life though because some of the materials we work with could be bad for my health. I have heard a lot of the stuff can possibly cause cancer which is nothing something I want to deal with later on in life. It is not the General Steel that causes it but some of the other materials we work with. I am going to talk to my manager tomorrow to see what he says about those claims because I do not want to get sick because I have a whole family that I have to support. I still love doing the work but I do not know if it is worth getting really really sick.
