Canadian Alberni Engineering, Port Alberni BC

Most recent update: January 26, 2017.


Alberni Engineering was started in 1914 and is now a unit of Canadian Maritime Engineering, which renamed it Canadian Alberni Engineering, or CAE.   In 2014, CAE absorbed Kamma & Blake Industries, an innovative local builder of aluminum boats: their record is appended to the table below.  Visit the company at www.alberni-cae.com and see the yard from the air on Google here.  There is a lot of confusion in the later years of this table, with a bunch of boats that don't appear in the Canadian Register, either with official numbers or with C-numbers: if anyone can help untangle this mess, please send your input to me at timcolton@aol.com
