Most recent update: August 1, 2014.


Bishop Shipbuilding Corporation was started by T. L. Bishop, a fisherman, in 1965.  The yard is supposed to have been at 1338 West Palm Drive, but I cannot find this address on Google.  If anyone can point me to the shipyard's site, or can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com
