The U.S. Navy is in the process of replacing the SSN 688 Los Angeles class subs with the SSN 774 Virginia class, and the goal of the shipyard's commander, Capt. David S. Hunt, is to put the shipyard on a trajectory to have all of its dry docks Virginia-class capable when the last 688 is decommissioned.
