West Coast Salvage & Contracting, Vancouver BC

(later known as West Coast Manly Shipyards)

Most recent update: February 16, 2015.


West Coast Salvage & Contracting was started by Bunny Whitcroft in 1914, in the False Creek section of Vancouver, but stopped new construction in about 1977.   It was acquired by RivTow Marine in 1982, along with John Manly Ltd and B. C. Marine Shipbuilders, and all four operations were merged, using B.C. Marine's Victoria Drive location.  The new company was called RivTow Industries, but was generally known as West Coast Manly Shipyards.  If anyone can add to this table, please send your data to timcolton@aol.com
