Skinner & Eddy, Seattle WA

Most recent update: August 23, 2008.


Skinner & Eddy operated only during WWI, building cargo ships initially for export and then for the U.S. Shipping Board.  The shipyard was located on the downtown Seattle waterfront, at the foot of Atlantic Street, immediately to the south of Todd's original Seattle shipyard, the former Seattle Dry Dock & Construction.  See the site from the air on Google here.  In May 1918, Todd sold its yard to the Emergency Fleet Corporation, which combined it with Skinner & Eddy's yard.  Skinner & Eddy completed several Todd contracts and there may be some overlap between the two companies' records.  If anyone can provide any more information about this shipyard, please e-mail it to me at timcolton@aol.com
