Foreign-Trade Zone 41, Milwaukee, WI; Application for Subzone, Bay 
Shipbuilding Corp., Sturgeon Bay, WI 
 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board 
(the Board) by the Foreign-Trade Zone of Wisconsin, Ltd. (FTZW), grantee of 
Foreign-Trade Zone 41, Milwaukee, requesting special-purpose subzone status 
for the Bay Shipbuilding Corporation shipyard in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, 
some 40 miles from the Green Bay Customs port of entry. The application was 
submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as 
amended (19 USC 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 
400). It was formally filed on November 16, 1984. The applicant is 
authorized to make this proposal under Chapter 110 of the Wisconsin Laws of 
1977, approved October 13, 1977. The issue of adjacency will be reviewed 
by Customs. 
 
   The Board authorized the Milwaukee zone in September 1978 (Board Order 
136, 43 FR 46887, 10/11/78). Subzones were approved for the American Motors
plant in Kenosha and for the Muskegon Piston Ring plant in Manitowoc in 
August 1981 (Board Order 178, 46 FR 40718, 8/11/81). 
 
   The proposed subzone will be at Bay Shipbuilding's shipyard covering 80 
acres at 605 North 3rd Avenue in the port area of Sturgeon Bay. The 
facility is used to construct and repair barges and oceangoing vessels. 
Current activity involves the conversion of containerships for Sea Land 
Services. Foreign-sourced components for these vessels will include main 
engines, generators, deck fittings and machinery, gears, anchors, chains, 
doors, windows, ladders, ventilation and air conditioning equipment, 
switchboards, life boats and davits.  
 
   Zone procedures will help Bay Shipbuilding reduce costs on its current 
orders and compete internationally on bids for new products. The benefits 
stem from the fact that most of the components are subject to significant 
duties, and that the finished products, as oceangoing vessels, are duty-free.
 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The 
committee consists of John J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, Foreign-
Trade Zones Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 20230; 
Clinton P. Littlefield, District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North 
Central Region, 628 E. Michigan Street, Milwaukee, WI 53202; and Colonel 
Raymond T. Beurket, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Detroit, 
P.O. Box 1027, Detroit, MI 48231.  

   Comments concerning the proposed subzone are invited in writing from 
interested persons and organizations. They should be addressed to the 
Board's Executive Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or 
before December 28, 1984.  

   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
