Not just the US, but Britain, Germany, Holland, Japan etc etc have caved into the home costs of creating ships but we need to start rejuvinating our economies before a total monopoly of everything has us all to mercy. (Exceptions seem to be war/patrol vessels but what electronic components are M.in C.?)
It is wonderful that some British companies have started to build tools again: bit dearer but better in long term for macro economy.
