Alex Anderson, Marine City MI

Most recent update: May 8, 2016.


Alex Anderson's yard built both schooners and steam ships, so it must have made the transition to modern shipbuilding, but I can find no information about it except that it was at the foot of Broadway, the central point of Marine City.  If anyone can tell me more, or add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
