General Shipbuilding & Aero, Alexandria VA

Most recent update: January 24, 2015.


This shipyard is another mystery.  The name seems to indicate that there was more to its business than just the shipyard.  Can anyone tell me who owned it, when it opened, when it closed, where it was located?  It appears to have had difficulty performing, because the last five boats on its contract were subcontracted to Gibbs.  But if anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
