It had a different name in the 1940s, but now it's Puget Sound Naval
Shipyard. When I lived (briefly) in Bremerton back in 1981, the
Enterprise was being refitted, including replacing her reactors (cut a
hole five stories high in the side of the hull, pull the old core and
containment out, put the new one in, and button up the hull -- repeat
eight times). Some biggish machine tools involved, too -- picture a
test fixture for dynamic balancing a screw forty feet in diameter and
weighing several tens of tons...
A little big for pop-pop power, I think...

If, through hard work and perseverance, you finally get what you want,
it's probably a sign you weren't dreaming big enough.
