Southern Shipbuilding, Slidell LA

(formerly Canulette Shipbuilding)

Most recent update: January 13, 2017.


The shipyard in Slidell was originally established by Fritz Salmen in the 1880s: it became Slidell Shipbuilding in 1914 and Canulette Shipbuilding in 1919.  It was sold in 1954 and renamed J. & S. Shipbuilding, then sold again in 1957 and renamed Southern Shipbuilding.  Southern Shipbuilding closed in 1993 and the facility has been razed.  See the site from the air on Google here
