Mare Island Shipyard Drydock 2

Former Mare Island Naval Shipyard

 

A major west coast shipbuilding & repair facility for the US Navy from 1854-1996, this yard, along with the yard in Bremerton WA, saw extensive use during the WWII as the repair facility for ships damaged by the Japanese. The Navy has since decomissioned the facility and several plans are in the works for the site.
