"Commercial wooden boatbuilding thrived in St. Augustine with the advent of the shrimping industry in the 1920s and over the following decades expanded exponentially with the success of commercial boatbuilding outfits such as DESCO and St. Augustine Trawlers. DESCO (Diesel Engine Sales Company), in particular, built trawlers in such prodigious quantities for the world market that their motto became "The Sun Never Sets on a DESCO Boat."
