Pacific Coast Engineering (PACECO), Alameda CA

Most recent update: May 5, 2012.


Pacific Coast Engineering Company was started as a boat builder before WWII.  It ceased active shipbuilding in 1976 when it invented the container crane and shifted its activities to that market.  If anyone can fill any of the gaps in the table below, please contact me at timcolton@aol.com.  See the shipyard site from the air on Google here.
