Grays Harbor (123.853W
46.967N) is an inlet at the mouth of
the Chehalis River, roughly midway between Puget Sound and the Columbia River in the U.S.
Northwest. A limited number of wooden-hulled vessels were constructed here during the First World War. In 1941, the port of Aberdeen had modest facilities for lumber
shipping and Grays Harbor Shipbuilding Company continued to maintain a small shipyard. Moon Island Airport was located nearby and was expanded in 1942, becoming Bowerman Field postwar.
