Good point. Didn't even think about that.
I recall a Discovery Channel (I think) show on the building of a US Navy destroyer, which was welded up and outfitted in something like 5 blocks, which were each maneuvered into position and welded up. Kind of amazing, as even stuff like piping and such was pre-installed, then joined later.
And then there's me: I can't even get two pieces of wood to go together correctly...
