Giving ‘Diligence’ Its Due

New dry dock geared to boost South Bay jobs

You’d think that if anyone needed federal stimulus funds it might be the mega yacht, tuna boat and U.S. Navy ship repair business in San Diego.
Not so, according to Knight & Carver Maritime, a large vessel and yacht repair company based on San Diego Bay.
Knight & Carver decided to help stimulate the South Bay economy by mooring its recently purchased 4,000-ton dry dock in National City.
Named the “Diligence” (who figured dry docks are named?), the 400-foot, 63-foot tall dry dock has been in operation since Labor Day.
Dry docks the sizes of “Diligence” are used to lift the larger sized vessels out of the water for repairs.
Now, Knight & Carver Maritime has the biggest yacht lifting capacity on the West Coast, says Mike O’Leary, Knight & Carver’s president and CEO.

Voice Your Opinion

We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
