Allen Boat Company, Harvey LA

Most recent update: November 30, 2016.


 I can find no information about Allen Boat Company except that it was an operator with its own boatyard.  I assume that the yard was on the Harvey Canal, but where exactly?  Who started the business?  When?  When did it close?  Why? What else did they build?  If you can help, please send your info to me at timcolton@aol.com
