Other Wartime Boatbuilders - Pacific Coast


This table lists boats and barges built for the US Government in wartime by other boatbuilders on the Pacific Coast.  Most of these yards were active only during wartime and I have little or no information about them.  If anyone can tell me anything helpful about any of these yards - who owned them, where exactly they were located, what happened to them after the war - please e-mail timcolton@aol.com.
