I worked in shop 51 from 1973 through 1983 as an electrician and the Instrument mechanic. I worked for Exxon and then Valero and am still there although now in Texas. It is depressing to see the island now and see it slowly rot away.

Mother recently gave me a book, The United States Navy Yard Mare Island California 1924. Do you have any information on this book?

I worked in Shop 06, and Code 385. I retired in 1994. I went to work for Chevron Corp. in Richmond the next Monday and retired from Chevron Corp. in April 2006. I still have my health. It has been a nice, rewarding ride for me. I have great memories of Mare Island and probably ended my career there with the best job on M.I. I worked out of the crow's nest in Building 47 for Dennis Farber and Darlene Dell. Great job and great co-workers at the end. Life started out hard but has gotten better each year. Wow.

Trying to find information and pictures of Floating dry dock #7 between 1945 and 1946.
Where is the real history on this site or ?
I found a couple pictures of something but where?
Dissappointment to say the least.
