Industrial Pipe Fitting Versus Maritime Pipe Fitting

I am a journeyman pipe fitter. I have been fitting for 5 years on the industrial side of fitting, such as refineries, ethanol plants, paper mills, etc. I have decided to take on a shipyard job. I can pass most any fitters test on the industrial side, but I am a little worried about taking a fitters test on the maritime side. I am assuming pipe fitting is pipe fitting, regardless of where it is. What differences in the test should I expect? I have heard the prints are different in maritime from industrial, if so, in what ways? I served several years in the Navy, aboard Navy vessels, and I am familiar with the compartmentation of ships, but that's about it. If anybody has any answers and comments about what I should expect, I would appreciate it. Thanks, Larry P.

Great question , I am an Industrial fitter, but all the jobs seem to be in the ship yards. I'm wondering how different it would be.
