There was a Maritime Commission shipyard in Sausalito operated by Marinship Corporation. The yard had six ways and produced Liberty Ships and T2 tankers. The yard drew on agricultural workers on this side of San Francisco Bay, of whom 90% had no previous experience in a factory setting. The layout of the yard profited from earlier experience with Maritime Commission yards and was carefully organized for efficient flow of materials through the yard.
