Marinship, Sausalito CA

Most recent update: October 15, 2010.


Marinship Corporation was an emergency yard, built by Bechtel-McCone with 6 ways in the fifth wave of shipbuilding expansion funded by $17mm from the USMC.  It was one of the four yards that built T-2 tankers.  Marinship was remarkable for laying its first keel within three months of receiving authorization to build the shipyard.  At its peak, Marinship employed 20,000 people.  After the war, the yard was taken over by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and redeveloped: see it from the air on Google here.  Some great photographs can be found at www.sausalitohistoricalsociety.com/marinship/default.htm.
