The article features Geraldton Boat Builders, Western Australia's powerhouse of lobster boat building. In the 1990s, the company has made a decision to diversify into patrol boats and had already built patrol boats for the state's Fisheries Department and had exclusive use of the work of Southerly Designs. Then the company split into Strategic Marine and Western Boat Builders (WBB), which continued to build lobster boats. The company underwent further diversification upon the surge in offshore development such as the Gorgon project.
