Background
Stone Boat Yard History: The Stone Boat Yard was a San Francisco Bay Area boat building company that was located in Alameda, California, from 1971-2004. The business had three previous names, and has been in four other locations in the San Francisco Bay Area since its establishment in San Francisco by W.I. Stone in 1853. It was run by three generations of Stones from 1853 until 1970 (W.I. Stone, W.F. Stone, and Lester Stone). It was one of the oldest and longest running businesses on the Pacific Coast and its boats and designs were very influential in Pacific Coast maritime history. Each of these boat yards was often referred to as "the Stone Boat Yard," "Stone Yard," or "Stone's Yard," (shortening their official name) even though only the last iteration of the business (from 1971-2004) was officially called the Stone Boat Yard.
