QUALITY MARINE

Theodore and Bayou La Bātre AL

Most recent update: August 23, 2014.

Quality Marine, Inc., was started in 1972, by Frank Johnson and J. L. Howard, on the East Fowl River in Theodore AL.  They expanded to Bayou La Batre in 1976 and closed the Theodore yard in 1980.  In 1986, the two partners split the Bayou La Batre property between them, with Johnson starting Johnson Shipbuilding & Repair Company on the western half - find them here - and Howard starting Ocean Marine on the eastern half.  Johnson closed in 1998 and Ocean Marine in 2006.  See the site from the air on Google here.  If anyone can fill any of the many gaps in the table below, please e-mail timcolton@aol.com.
